COMMUNITY EVENT
Field Recording Workshop & Sound Bath with Lavender Suarez

Part of The Blue Bus Mobile Media Lab Workshops
Sunday, May 16, 2:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.
34th Ave Open Street in Jackson Heights

Would you like to learn how to create an archive of sounds that represent your neighborhood? By thoughtfully listening to the people and the ecosystem (natural and human-made) of our neighborhoods, as well as the culture at large, we can gain deep insights into our roles as members of our communities. Documenting sounds can give us a rich sense of learning, discovery, belonging, and purpose. Lavender Suarez will lead a media workshop featuring basic audio recording techniques (known as field recording) to assist you in becoming a sonic explorer in your neighborhood. Participants will be guided to use their cellphone's audio recording feature to take recordings during the workshop. Please bring headphones and make sure you have storage space available on your phone to hold the recordings. The workshop will feature a meditative sound bath, and participants will help gather an archive of sounds, which will be accessible on the MoMI website.

Join MoMI in supporting our partner, The Blue Bus Project, with this series of free outside media workshops around Queens, called the The Blue Bus Mobile Media Lab. The Blue Bus Project is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization committed to bringing participatory arts events into underserved communities around NYC, heightening awareness and encouraging social and environmental change through visual art, performance, and interdisciplinary workshops. The field recording workshop & sound bath with artist Lavender Suarez is the first event of this series and will be offered in English and Spanish. It will take place in Jackson Heights, on 34th avenue between 93rd and 94th Street, and is co-sponsored by Emerald Isle Immigration Center, 34th Avenue Open Streets, and Together We Can.

This program is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, with additional support from Citizens Committee for New York City.
