Eshel goes to Art Kibbutz

August 28, 2016 at 7:00 am - 11:00 am

This Sunday, join Eshel in celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community through dance, art, spoken word, and all other forms of creative expression. Guests are invited to eat, drink, and enjoy entertainment spread across the sprawling green grounds of Governor’s Island and Art Kibbutz summer studios at Nolan Park 6B. We will share food, meet and greet the artists & enjoy movement and audial work-in-progress performance of interdisciplinary artist Moriah Ella Mason as well as a sneak preview of Pearl Gluck’s new film, Summer – about two Chassidic girls falling in love.

This will be followed by a discussion moderated by Chavie Weisberger, Eshel’s Program Director.  For more information, see the Facebook event:
