Civic Art Lab (2011-present) is the perennial platform that engages hundreds of participants in free public workshops at host locations in Chinatown, the Lower East Side (Manhattan) and Bed-Stuy (Brooklyn) merging environmental topics and experiential, design-based, learning. The project is organized by the volunteer-led collective GREENSPACENYC, which was founded in 2010, and to date has led over 200 programs.
