New York, October 30th, 2023 — Korea Art Forum (KAF) is excited to announce the last outdoor iteration of the 2023 Shared Dialogue, Shared Space (SDSS), a participatory art event that will take place on November 11th, from 12–4 p.m. at the peninsula and front side of Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan. 


The event will feature four artists or teams creating collaborative work with the Inwood community. Moses Ros will invite participants to make Repróllage that combines printmaking and collage of recycled materials, engaging youth in creating a mural on an existing container that will stay for a year. The Square Theatre will invite community members to be part of a dialogic performance that uses collected questions, objects, and stories to connect immigrant experiences.  


Eugenie Chao and subt.le (brandon king), two recent SPCUNY Fellows, will imagine an alternative history to the Manhattan Project,  inquiring what if peace-building efforts in the early 1940s were carried out through art and human interactions instead of the development of weapons of mass destruction. Their inquiries into the sound of peace will manifest as an interactive, community-oriented participatory art event involving peace-focused dialogues, crafting musical instruments from clay, and utilizing various musical instruments, voices, and found sounds to create sonic compositions inspired by the conversations on peacebuilding.


This SDSS event in Manhattan is part of a series of Saturday participatory art initiatives presented for free in NYC Parks and public places. The SDSS project fosters dialogues between the audience and artists, exploring a wide range of subject matters and the multidimensional impact of art in the processes of cultural production and social change. The project aims to disrupt rising anti-Asian sentiments and racial divides that are entrenched in all sectors of American life. 


Since 2020, SDSS has connected the public to art and culture through language access and participatory art activities. The project has offered artist-run workshops, performances, and participatory activities to the public, focusing on immigrant communities, people with disabilities, and those with economic hardship, free of charge, with interpretation services in English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and ASL at local parks embedded in the community. For the past four years, SDSS has broadened communication channels between the contemporary art world and local communities in New York City, advancing the artists’ creative endeavors of engaging the public. 

The upcoming event promises to be an engaging experience that connects immigrant and underserved communities in New York City to visual arts and culture. The projects will provide an intercultural perspective that can help us be more empathetic in creating peace in our community. Join us on November 11th from 12–4 p.m. in Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan, to celebrate the power of art in shaping our communities. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
