The Kensington Stewards are pleased to announce a summer of fun programming and public events taking place in the newly renovated Avenue C Plaza, at the intersection of Avenue C and McDonald Avenue during June and July 2017

The season will kick off on June 2nd with Immigrant Culture Month at Avenue C, a month of public arts programming co-produced with ArtBuilt and Arts & Democracy, and focused on the cultural traditions and experiences of immigrant communities in the Kensington area.

Based out of the ArtBuilt Mobile Studio, a beautifully designed artist studio on wheels, events will spread out into the plaza as weather permits.  Building on ArtBuilt’s inaugural season at Avenue C Plaza in June 2016, this year’s events will once again feature local teaching artists from Kensington, and will include public art-making workshops, Bengali poetry and singing classes, Oaxacan craft-making, creative writing workshops, a gardening workshop exploring plants from different cultures, hands-on henna art, and much more!
