The Take Care Series at The Arts Center at Governors Island

The Arts Center at Governors Island is open for the 2022 Public Season from May 28-October 31. Join us for The Take Care Series on July 16, August 20, September 17 and October 15!

The Take Care Series offers audiences of all ages an opportunity to actively engage in performances, workshops, talks, and other interactive events that embrace ideas of caretaking. This series of free public programs aims to find artfulness in the everyday by exploring creative practices and community projects that emphasize care for ourselves, our communities, and our planet.

Through performance, workshops, talks, and Open Studios with our artists-in-residence and partnerships with local arts and cultural organizations, we explore creative practices and different ways to care for ourselves, our communities, and our planet  and world around us. Past partners have included Little Sun, The Climate Museum, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Earth Celebrations, the poet Asiya Wadud, and many others.

All exhibitions and events in The Take Care Series are free and open to all. We welcome anyone who is interested in engaging with the creative process and connecting directly with artists.

Stay tuned and sign up for our mailing list for more information.

The Arts Center is also home to working artists all year long. For more information about our Artist Residency programs on Governors Island, click here.
