CALL UPDATE // December 2017
CALL Co-Chairman Charles McKinney begins our November CALL WALK along the proposed route for TIbbetts Brook in Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx

As December draws to a close in a burst of year-end festivities, CALL is looking forward to an exciting 2018. From running artist-lead emergency preparedness workshops in Harlem to helping communities in the Bronx envision the possibilities of daylighting Tibbett’s Brook, our 2018 programming will stretch from New York City to Milwaukee and engage hundreds of individuals in imagining creative solutions to the most pressing issues of sustainability our cities face.
We look forward to partnering with you to make sustainability tangible through the arts this year!
Happy New Year,

Mary & Olivia

CALL WALK, Tibbetts Brook
In November, CALL hosted a walk along the proposed route for daylighting Tibbetts Brook. We heard from SLO Architecture, Charles McKinney, and Eric Sanderson on the potential daylighting the brook will have for the Bronx. If realized, this project can be transformative for New York City.

We'll be organizing more walks as well as some really interesting Tibbetts Brook workshops and programs throughout the spring and summer, including exciting new projects by SLO and artist and environmental activist Bob Braine.

Stay tuned to take part!
