Zip Code Memory Project Presents
Together, Not Alone
NEW YORK City Five-Borough Tour
and a never-before-seen compilation of Queens Covid Stories
When NYC ordered all “non-essential workers” to close up and go home, “we” the community-based cultural institutions, the artists, curators, photographers, administrators, oral historians, storytellers, community educators, teaching-artists [and the list goes on], asked ourselves: ARE WE ESSENTIAL? Are the trusted social networks we have forged – over years and decades – essential to maintaining?
Yes! Without a moment’s doubt, the city’s cultural institutions, big and small, literally and figuratively, became cultural first responders by creating space across the digital universe for conversation, community, hope, and resilience.
Zip Code Memory Project in collaboration with the Queens World Film Festival, Queens Memory Project, A-Doc (Asian American Documentary Network), Union Docs, Five Boro Story Project, Stoop Stories, and LaGuardia and Wagner Archives at LaGuardia Community College/CUNY, will present the NYC Five-Borough ‘Together, Not Alone – Zip Codes Remember’ Tour on March 19, 3:30pm at The Local in LIC Queens.
The event will open with refreshments from the Queensboro Restaurant who mobilized their resources to feed our first responders at Elmhurst Hospital Center as they became the epicenter of the epicenter. The repast will be accompanied by interactive participation in memory mapping, conversation, and activities designed to bring us together around our shared and lived experiences.
