If you’re looking for a release, look no further than the Open Air Fair at 2 Noble St. this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, July 22 and 23, on the waterfront, the fair will be featuring countless ways to express yourself — from art therapy to yoga and beyond — from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
JunXion will be soundtracking the weekend’s festivities with tunes from (basically) start to finish while hosting special events and installations for everyone to enjoy. On Saturday, pop into their geodesic dome space — specially designed to be an activity hub — for a 12 p.m. book club meeting, enjoy a 60-minute free-flowing yoga session from Yoga Block Party at 1 p.m., and join the Ecstatic Dance Party from 2 to 6 p.m.
The Ecstatic Dance Party is designed to be a safe, inviting, and immersive space for all, and features five rules: 1) No talking on the dance floor. 2) No drugs, smoking, or alcohol. 3) No photos or videos; keep phones silenced and out of sight. 4) Respect the space and one another. And 5) Move your body however you wish. Simple enough!
Then, on Sunday, JunXion’s signature art bus and Glinda the Good Bus, will be on site with hourly DJs while Bushwick’s Art Therapy Place hosts an all-day interactive Rip & Repair activity in the dome. Rip & Repair is a collaging activity designed to be as artistic as it is cathartic, involving ripping images out of magazines and turning them into something new.
As always, you can also expect diverse and delicious food stands, multiple vintage and artisan vendors, and a fun, interactive kid zone.
