This is the second in a series of Silent Barn PUBLIC MEETINGS; an experiment in group participation! 

This is an opportunity for us to share all of our progress with you in person, and hear your thoughts. This is an opportunity to think about, talk about, and collaborate to imagine the future of DIY art culture in New York, including the some-day real new Silent Barn. This is an opportunity for you to get directly involved in many new Silent Barn projects and put your hands in with us. This is an opportunity for all to be a host again to an incredible music moment in New York. This is an opportunity get down to business with the finest krainerwurst in all of Queens.

PUBLIC MEETING #2 is proud to also be the closing event in the Queens Museum of Art's ACTUALLY, IT'S RIDGEWOOD art crawl. 

Join QMA guides in exploring interesting locales just this side of the borough line ranging from an 18th-century Dutch farmhouse (now with sculpture garden!) to the newest basement gallery.

 EXPLORING NEW LOCATIONS 

As we build relationships throughout New York, we're constantly painting different interpretative portraits of the stew that was the Silent Barn. Here's my East New York Community Board face portrait of the Silent Barn I made in chalk. It...
's a start. Wherever we go, I wonder what our Silent Barn storefront sign will look like - Hopefully like our profile picture! and I wonder how a public window will transform the Silent Barn's place in the world - Kunal


What can we bring to East New York?


A solid platform for nurturing and presenting art communities in Brooklyn & Queens.

Performance  spaces

These spaces are reserved for music, theater, and performance art from local, national, and international performers.  A low overhead (subsidized by residencies) removes financial constraints and allows community participation in event programming, as well as minimizing the ticket price for the community and maximizing income for artists.

Artist residencies

An artist in residency program invites artists to live immersed inside of an this multi-functional art space to curate, showcase, and collaborate with art and music from underground new york artists.   Taking cues from the Project Row Houses program in Texas, this hopefully provides an especially rare platform for an inspiring collaboration between creative minds from around the world and in East New York.

Workshop spaces

The workshops mirror the activities of the space, and empower our audience to respond to programming and create work of their own, and to contribute art to an art community.  We're proud of ability to take cultivate youth involvement in the arts in particular, as well as providing platforms for younger creative people to take a creative path seriously, and creating face-to-face educational relationships between successful artists and younger enthusiasts of games, art, and music.

Storefront Gallery

The front gallery will create a positive presence in the neighborhood by presenting visual artwork directly to the surrounding community. Open daytime hours, the gallery will also host the resale of independently produced records, publications, art, and video games brought to us through the many performances, workshops, and residencies described above.

 DO IT YOURSELF
