JaZZ: Jam…Zpace Ztation Workshop, Part 2

How do we map sound? Inspired by the Queens Jazz Trail map, in this Black Music Month (June) workshop, we will go on a tour through Addisleigh Park and Linden Blvd where several Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Pop music legends lived in Southeast Queens and discuss how locations and space impact the shaping of sound and music. Participants will receive prompts throughout the tour to think about the creative potentials of sound and music in the area and write their own responses. This workshop will be led by Sherese Francis, an Alkymist of the I-Magination who expresses her(e)self through poetry, interdisciplinary arts, workshop facilitation, editing and literary curation. Her(e) work takes inspiration from her(e) Afro-Caribbean heritage (Barbados and Dominica), and studies in Afrofuturism and Black Speculative Arts, mythology and etymology.
