Wrap up Lower East Side History Month with us and celebrate our new FABLES ground mural La siembra del hogar//Sowing Homes by Raul Ayala in collaboration with CC 1/19.Event Banner Templates_Event Invite

La siembra del hogar//Sowing Homes looks back at the history of squatting here in the Lower East Side, celebrates the restorative power of community, and draws attention to the anchoring presence of women in community-building. Oral history accounts heavily inform the narrative of this work, including drawing upon interviews conducted by Amy Starecheski (Associate Director, Columbia University Oral History MA Program) for her book, Ours to Lose: When Squatters Became Homeowners in New York City. 

You can read more about Raul Ayala & Fernanda Espinosa in this FABRIC post here.

Join us June 1 and get to speak to Raul & Fernanda in-person about the work!
