Panel: Small Businesses as Cultural Contributors

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space

May. 14, 2018, 06:30 am

120 Essex Street (located inside Essex Street Market)

As much as artists and cultural establishments hold importance in shaping New York City, small businesses are equally as vital to the cultural lifeblood that defines New York City. This discussion will bring together artist Hatuey Ramos-Fermín, Essex Market vendors, and a representative of Cooper Square Committee to discuss the contributions of small businesses to the Lower East Side’s cultural fabric. Panelists will consider how artists and cultural organizations in the neighborhood have aligned with small businesses, and discuss ways to strengthen the foundation of how cultural vibrancy is represented in a city-wide context. Free with RSVP at
