Streetwise: Writing from NYC Street Art

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Street Art and Hip-Hop originated in The Bronx and became a global influence, even playing an essential role in the fall of the Berlin Wall. It continues to mirror the population's direct needs and opinions and in New York City there are as many opinions as there are New Yorkers. This course sets out to visit Street Art's visual neighborhoods: East Village's ABC City, Chelsea and the High Line, the Bowery Wall and the Lower East Side, and Williamsburg. We carry cellphone cameras and document what's new, and then write poems, prose poems, or flash fiction inspired by the photos taken during class excursions. Students create a final project containing both their photographs and original writing. We convene at The New School to share work as it progresses. Students build in a "coffee shop budget" for pauses during class excursions.
