Walking Tour #1: East Village with Cynthia Copeland (Platform 2018)
Platform 2018 considers the cultural, dance, and architectural histories of the many peoples who’ve inhabited downtown NYC and beyond. Each week the Platform will feature a commissioned walking tour led by an artist or scholar. Space is extremely limited! RSVP is required.
Cynthia Copeland is a public historian and interpretive specialist focused on Afro-American, American, urban, and museum studies. She is president of the Institute for the Exploration of Seneca Village History. This tour will focus on Copeland’s perspective as an historian, East Village resident, and a parishioner of St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery.
Danspace Project will confirm exact meeting location for the tour approximately one week in advance.
