I am on a roll today, which is what keeping up a blog is supposed to be like! here is another great project with another video.
The Laundromat Project is a community-based non-profit arts organization committed to the well-being of people of color living on low incomes in New York City. Understanding that creativity is a central component of healthy human beings, vibrant neighborhoods, and thriving economies, the goal of the project is to bring art programs to where neighbors already are: the local laundromat.
interestingly enough, I have learned that laundromats recently have become a hot spot for pop up art shows and music sessions. take this project for example. a whole blog about laundromat stories. I suppose it makes sense to think about bringing creativeness to laundromats – would have improved my experience!
cant say much else besides what a wonderful and beautiful idea! simple, inexpensive, participatory. one major thing I took from the video – art makes people happy; even better, it can unlock potential people didnt even know they had.
