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.

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.
