Youth, Workshop

Design a Date!

Friday, July 08 2016
3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Jamaica-based artist Kahiem Archer, together with teens participating in No Longer Empty’s Y.Dot Youth Docent and Y.Lab Young Curators Programs, invite you go on a date in downtown Jamaica, Queens!

First stop: Jameco Story Salon. Meet the artist and teens, and share your interests while sitting for a portrait by Kahiem Archer. In turn, a date will be designed for you and yours: a friend, date, partner, lover, sister or other family member, with whom you can partake in activities centered around downtown Jamaica. Archer, is a long-time Jamaica resident, and the teens have spent months researching Jamaica, Queens, resulting in the site-specific exhibition Jameco Vibes, and lists and maps of their favorite places, highlighting landmarks, cultural organizations, places to eat, visit, hang out in and shop at.
