The ways in which we interact with personal and communal spaces has been transformed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this town hall artists, activists, entrepreneurs, and community leaders come together to share and discuss their perspectives on what is needed from Harlem community spaces in this moment and beyond. 

This virtual event is organized by the Wallach Art Gallery in support of Harlem Renaissance 100. The program accompanies the Uptown Triennial 2020 exhibition at the Wallach Art Gallery.
