CARTS PROJECT – PROYECTO DE CARRITOS

by: Architect Nandini Bagchee & Social Practice Queens

Carts will be located at Loisaida Festival’s STEAM Zone (Avenue C between 6th and 7th Street)



Come participate in the Carts Project – Participa del Proyecto de Carritos!

The Carts Project celebrates Loisaida and invites you to participate by mapping out the past and connecting it to a future where gardens, affordable housing, storefronts and cultural institutions continue to thrive.

The mobile carts carrying sections of the map of Loisaida will be dispersed in the festival. Each of these carts will become a means to collect peoples stories and record the memories of the struggle for self determination in the neighborhood. The mobile carts, the eponymous symbol of an informal economy, will also register the potential threats to the commercial and institutional landscape of the city.

The (outdoor) Carts Project launches an (indoor) exhibit, Activist Estates: An Alternate History of Real Estate in Loisaida curated and designed by Nandini Bagchee in collaboration with the Loisaida Inc. Center, exhibition opening in the Fall of 2019.
