Local Grassroots Organizations presents 'Queens Week of Community' Full of Art, Workshops, Film Screenings + More, Sept 28 - Oct 5

Woodside, NY - From Saturday, September 28 to Saturday, October 5, Anakbayan New York (ABNY) and the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) presents Linggo Ng Samahan (Week of Community) Bayanihan Festival. Community members from all over NYC and beyond are welcome to participate in this weeklong event: showcasing art from local artists, to local & cultural workshops, classes & trainings, and film screenings. This Week of Community is to be held at the Living Artist Gallery located at 38-02 61st Street Woodside, NY 11377. 

Join Anakbayan New York with NAFCON and celebrate the diversity and strength of our local communities.

Background: As the summer comes to a close, we come together to celebrate our communities’ vibrant culture. Queens is a borough historically known for its abundance of migrants and working class families.

In a climate that often makes us feel separated or isolated, we should always remind ourselves that we are not alone and that together we have strength.

During the week of Saturday Sept 28th through Saturday October 5th, Anakbayan New York with NAFCON welcome you to participate in activities and workshops that embrace the neighborhood. These daily events aim to address local issues such as immigration, displacement, anti-gentrification, and the diaspora at large. These activities will initiate and inspire community members through art and culture.

Anakbayan New York with NAFCON invites local members of all cultural backgrounds for Linggo Ng Samahan (Week of Community) as we share space, resources, and build towards empowering the community. All events are free and open to the public* (Some workshops ask for a small donation or fee). Anakbayan New York with NAFCON looks forward to hearing each others’ stories and experiences through cultural expression and educational discussions.
