“Actually, it's Ridgewood”
is happening soon, in May.
It'sorganized by The Queens Museum of Art.
Silent Barn will be participating by organizing our Public Meeting #2 around that day. Here's some investigations about Ridgewood that the QMA's Director of Public Events, Prerana Reddy, dug up last month
They spoke with Joe about Gotscheer Hall at the Silent Barn's last Public Meeting, the video for which is at the bottom of Prerana Reddy's Ridgewood investigation. Here's some more info on the first Public Meeting
Brandon Zwaggerman will be the chef for the evening, helping organize the panel around Ridgewood Arts Organizations and how they've engaged with the surrounding community. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to reach out to him directly with questions or to brainstorm on this thread here on ideas for Silent Barn's Public Meeting #2!
