Williamsburg Meet-Up

Radegast

My fellow Williamburg coordinator, Niki Singleton, and myself are very excited about Wednesday night - we will be hosting a GO Artist and Voter Meet-Up for Williamsburg at Radegast Beer Hall from 6-8pm. While the event is in Williamsburg, it is open to all. 

Whether you are an artist, voter, of member of the community, please come have a beer or pretzel with us, discuss the upcoming Open Studio weekend, and ask us any questions you may have. Niki and I feel so honored to be working with this amazing community and can’t wait to talk to you. See you then.

I spent Saturday afternoon at Northside Art//Williamsburg Walks running the GO table - and what a wonderful experience it was! The energy was incredible, and I was so pleased at how many people stopped by to get information about the project. Artists and art lovers alike were enthusiastic about the prospect of a Brooklyn-wide open studios, uniting diverse neighborhoods and artists. I had great talks about everything from art education to converting apartments into studio spaces and got to hear a lovely reminiscence about visiting the Brooklyn Museum in the 1960s. I’ve lived in Brooklyn for less than a year, and the warmth and vibrancy of Brooklynites continuously thrills me. As a visiting friend remarked to me yesterday after wandering through the fair: “You Brooklyn people are all weird, but you’re weird together and that’s the most wonderful thing!”

Meet David Michael Perez, he’s a Neighborhood Coordinator for GO in Williamsburg and Greenpoint. You may know David already because for the past three years, he’s been the co-founder and director of FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics), a public dinner/arts grant program in Brooklyn. To hear David talk about FEAST is incredibly inspiring - he’s been thinking outside the box about how to bring artists and community together for a long time and been incredibly successful at doing so.  We are psyched he’s working on GO and you are likely to see him in Williamsburg for Northside Arts this weekend. In his own words…

I’ve lived in Greenpoint for almost three years and the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area for 8 years.

You’ll find me hanging out at Diner, Marlow & Sons, The Richardson, Pencil Factory, Gowanus Studio Space, & McCarren Park.

I’ll never move from Greenpoint because my street is so lovely and the neighborhood is just my speed.

Meet Niki Singleton, our Neighborhood Coordinator for Williamsburg. Niki is an artist and during her interview almost didn’t take the job because she was so torn about not being able to open her studio for GO if she was working on the project. In the end, she decided to come on board with us to help galvanize the neighborhood and we couldn’t be more happy about it!  In her words…
I’ve lived in Williamsburg for 3 years.
You’ll find me hanging out at galleries in Williamsburg, on the streets and in the cafes.
I’ll never move from Williamsburg because it’s the best I’ve ever come across after travelling the world for ten years!
