Thursday Spotlight: Christopher Carr Continues to Foster Community through Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival

The Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival is accepting of multiple art forms, diverse creators, and unique storytellers, but it has a few things it does not tolerate: hate speech, promotion of senseless or gratuitous violence, and — perhaps most importantly — exclusivity, entitlement or the expression of privilege.

That last element is probably the most abhorrent because it goes against everything Christopher Carr strives to foster: community. Carr is an artistic curator for the people; through his and Melissa Hunter Gurney’s GAMBA Forest Gallery, opportunities are more readily available than they might be in the artistic rat race that is New York. As Carr prepares for the sixth annual Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival — starting August 31 and running through September 9 around the nabe — he reflects on the inclusion he has nurtured and the art he looks forward to sharing. Tickets to the event are now on sale, and (per Carr’s wishes) they’re are economically accessible: a pass for all 10 days of the event is just $50.  Continue reading

Summerscreen has yet to announce the final film, so take advantage of the time that remains to cast your vote!

The options for the August 29 screening are Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion, Bad Boys, You Got Served, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and High FidelityTo further spice up the event, Kombrewcha will be the (complimentary!) beverage sponsor during the screening.

Movies start close to sundown, but there’s plenty to enjoy beforehand including food trucks, opening bands, and (of course) the boozy and fizzy Kombrewcha. Bring a blanket to sit on (snacks and dogs welcome!) and say farewell to summer this Wednesday.
