Uptown Summer is a 5-week series of arts and sustainability activities for young people in North Troy, NY. The theme of our fourth season: is “NATURELab in North Troy.”
With support from Rensselaer County Summer Youth Employment, neighboring teens will come together with artists, educators and environmental experts, to explore identity and place, build art and green space, and make positive change in their community.
NATURE Lab uses arts as a seed to reclaim public space and build community. Situated on a neglected block in Troy, NY, this living learning laboratory engages networks of artists and scientists, media makers and gardeners, community organizers and neighbors in collective actions stimulating environmental health and sustainability.
