Scores from Inwood. Featuring work in progress by Monica Robles.
Fellow local artist Greg Nuñez interviews Monica Robles about “Considering Disobedience”- Part 1 of a community based art project.
Monica Robles is an artist living in Inwood, NYC. She is working on a community arts project based on Mayor Bill De Blasio’s recent plan to rezone parts of her neighborhood. We met to speak during the early stages of development of this project. We touched upon challenges she faces in her creative process and the political dimensions inherent in this type of work.
Calling on volunteers for a project inspired by community rezoning.
Please read the the details here and kindly consider being a part of the project. Also consider referring people to the project and passing along this information.

United We Sock is an interdisciplinary performance that includes spoken word poetry. The performers will be emphasizing solidarity and unity by performing excerpts of their poems to groups of people sequentially, ultimately joining a big choir of poetry.
Performers are required to attend one of two rehearsals plus the performance on May 5th. Both performance and rehearsal will happen at the Andrew Freedman Home:
Rehearsal dates (one of two is required):
- Thursday, May 3rd from 4:30 to 7pm
- Friday, May 4th from 4:30 to 7:00pm
- Saturday, May 5th from 5- 6pm. Performers are called to arrive at 4:30pm.
There is no monetary compensation. However, approximately 2,500 people attended the art opening last April 4that the Home and many attend The Home regularly so there is great opportunity for networking, exposure, and promotion.
