Chant UP with Gaura Vani at United Palace of Spiritual Arts

The UPSA debuts “Chant UP with Gaura Vani,” a monthly world-music experience of kirtan.  Kirtan is a musical form of storytelling, shared recitation and call-and-response that opens the heart and allows a glimpse of the beauty that lies in our human and spiritual connections.
Join us for a celebration of the ancient, mystical tradition of mantra music. Elevate your spirit and cultivate community through the joyous, sacred sounds of kirtan at the all-inclusive UPSA.

Student-Led Workshops with Artist Nick Kozak at Inwood Hill Park

Nick Kozak’s installation Opposition Position challenges us to examine our education system and to stage our own educational interactions in this classroom in the park. Here all are welcome to attend free workshops led by local students on the first Saturday of each month through March, 2019 (rain date on the second Saturday of the month).

The workshops will cover a variety of topics related to personal narratives and educational systems. For more information about each session’s topics, please visit: https://www.kozakartclass.com/#/opposition-position/.

Opposition Position is one of two artworks presented as part of the exhibition Persuasive Visions in Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan. Inspired by W. E. B. Du Bois’s conviction that propaganda through the arts can create social change, Persuasive Visions presents the work of two local artists, Gina Goico and Nick Kozak, who respond to today’s constant deluge of (mis)information.

This exhibition was curated by presented by Stephanie A. Lindquist and is presented by the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance.
