Around NYC Today (1/8) Punderdome, Ambush Comedy


Calligraphy Class, 26 Mott St – Chinatown, 7pm – 9pm

W.O.W. Project’s artist in residence Vincent Chong is offering workshops in Chinese calligraphy throughout the fall. On one hand the workshops will function as introductory courses, introducing participants to the traditional tools and strategies used to study Chinese calligraphy. And on the other, they will function as spaces of discussion to chat about how to carry traditions as young people — how to acknowledge the narratives of those erased through history, and how to establish agency and ownership within these traditions. Free. RSVP.
