WORKSHOPS 

Over the past 7 years, STooPS has accumulated a wealth of knowledge about community organizing and accumulated a network of talented artists we would love to share with our larger global community.  STooPS offers workshops to educate or entertainment your community for your next events!  Check out our offerings below:

How can art in unconventional places create dialogue for community building?  This session will look at the techniques used to organize STooPS, a community building event that uses arts to revitalize outside culture in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. We will look at how the sharing of art in atypical settings can create and expand relationships within a neighborhood and creatively confront gentrification. Participants will analyze our process and explore applying the techniques to other settings.

Workshop Time: 2-3 hours

Mini STooPS

In this fun workshop, 2-3 teaching artists of different genres will lead participants in mini sessions of their art form (ie dance, visual art, poetry for instance).  Participants and Teaching Artists will then collaboratively decide how to weave their creations into one piece.  At the end of the workshop participants have a unique STooPS creation ready for a showing to friends and family, or if possible, outside on a stoop or sidewalk. All ages and experience levels welcome!

Workshop Time: 2-3 hours
