On Wednesday, [January 20, 5:00pm at the Jewish Children’s Museum] I will present a public discussion to discuss a mural design concept intended for the community of Crown Heights. A group of Brooklyn youth will discuss their ideas and how they utilized residents’ stories to inform their design concepts. The event will provide a unique opportunity for the public who may reside, work, or are interested stakeholders in the cultural development of Crown Heights to contribute towards the evolving direction.
The ONE CROWN HEIGHTS mural [to be executed by Groundswell] has the ability to transform and unite the residents; the public’s contributions are not only valued, but necessary.
ONE CROWN HEIGHTS, is a cross-cultural project intended to increase community bonds, mobilize positive behavior and create opportunities for the Black, Caribbean, Jewish and newer residents to work towards One Crown Heights. The event is part of a larger project funded by the City Council to support a series of community conversations, special events, and the creation of a mural that promotes diversity and unity.
I hope you can join us and please feel free to share with others.
Yours in Partnership,
Laurie A. Cumbo
Member of the New York City Council
