Roundtable Discussion: Becoming Green in the Bronx

Roundtable Discussion: Becoming Green in the Bronx

Monday, February 13th at 6pm

The Bronx River Art Center is pleased to announce the Roundtable discussion “Becoming Green in the Bronx” by artist Alicia Grullón. This project looks into current Bronx initiatives reshaping the surrounding environment into sustainable living practices through encounters between people and civic engagement. Attendees are invited to the Roundtable to discuss these developments, expand and constructively criticize them. The aim is help to build on these current initiatives and make them accessible throughout the Bronx. The ideas that are brainstormed at the Roundtable will be culminated into a public letter that will be sent to city council members and community board representatives.

Admission is FREE and open to the public.
