We are excited to announce the dates for our annual Kingston Avenue Festival and Bed-Stuy Summer Kickoff as part of our annual Arts to End Violence program!

Kingston Avenue Festival

Saturday May 14 1PM-5PM

Kingston Avenue between Bergen Street and Pacific Street

Bedford-Stuyvesant Summer Kick-Off

Saturday June 11 11AM-7PM

Lafayette Avenue between Marcy Avenue and Tompkins Avenue

At the Mediation Center we work to create safe and healthy communities by interrupting gun violence and providing supportive services to our neighbors. Our Arts to End Violence programming and block parties showcase the creativity, excitement and fun within our communities!

Both of these events will feature various live performances including music, dance, and poetry, as well as crafts, games, and workshops for all ages! There will also be resource tables where organizations can share their work and explain the services they provide to community members.

We still have spaces open for performers and tabling organizations at both events! 

If you are interested in performing, tabling, photographing, or volunteering at either of these events, please contact Elaine Roghanian at Eroghanian@crownheights.org or 718-773-6886.
