Launch of Rise Up! Activism on the Lower East Side Place-Marking Project
May 31 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
City Lore is excited to launch “Rise Up! Activism on the Lower East Side,” an oral history-based place-marking project that aims to honor and illuminate the activist histories of pioneering organizations and individuals on the LES, our long-time home. Through Rise Up!, our team of historians, activists, and designers are developing unique, informative, and artful signs for LES sites of cultural and arts activism. Please join us as we cut the ribbon on our first Rise Up! sign, honoring artists, activists, and community scholars Clayton Patterson and Elsa Rensaa.
