Brooklyn FAM 2022: Festival of Arts and Music
Join Brooklyn FAM: Festival of Arts and Music in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance for a fantastic lineup of performances, dance and drumming workshops, and art-making at Brooklyn FAM’s 2nd annual, family-friendly flagship event. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held entirely indoors.
The program will feature Afro-modern MATHETA Dance, South African trumpeter Lesedi Ntsane’s jazz quartet, Chinese Theatre Works’ hand puppet theater and festive lion and dragon procession with audience participation, and Haitian tanbou performance with a hands-on workshop and drumming circle. Throughout the festival, try your hand at Chinese hacky sack and jump rope with new friends at the games table, and make your mark on a vibrant collaborative community art project.
Attendees can join the Chair Project, led by Brooklyn-based artist Annie Del Hierro, who invites you to magazine collage on upcycled wooden benches and chairs about the question “What does FAMily mean to you, to us?” The finished pieces will be installed at local businesses and gathering places as cool functional seating to spark new conversations about connection and community.
