This free interactive festival for all families celebrates the true spirit of democracy: freedom to express who you truly are. The festival will be filled with imaginative art-making activities, where young people can make their own feathered friend or puppet version of themselves, create their own activism patches, perform their own stories in the galleries, go on a scavenger hunt, and more. Whether it’s through movement, music, visual art, fashion, or another medium, this event is all about celebrating our identities, stories, and dreams, and imagining what the world would look like if children were in charge.
A special concert performance with celebrated R&B and soul musicians Shine & The Moonbeams will take place 3pm. Hosted in partnership with Cool Culture and P.S. 1 Elementary School, and co-presented with the Onassis Cultural Center New York as part of Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes. Drop in any time, or stay for the whole afternoon.
Bilingual volunteers (Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese) will be present.
