Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!

Screen Dance

A weekend-long intensive video dance workshop exploring site-responsive experimentation through the interdisciplinary process of mixing body movement and film together in Houston.

Led by the Las Girls Collective, Daniela Antelo and Brenda Cruz-Wolf, the participants will collaborate to create work in an immersive environment in various Houston locations as the urban landscape for movement and filmmaking. This workshop will be open to all community members- ranging from filmmakers, choreographers, dancers, visual artists or anyone interested in the art of collaboration.

The workshop will include:

     Introduction of screen dance, watching and examining contemporary films and talking through what makes screen dance successful.
     Exploring and encouraging a dialogue about what motivates and inspires us as makers, artists and creatives.
     Encourage participants to talk about their lives, creative experiences and practices as a tool to fuel art-making.
     Discuss different approaches to structuring a work.
     Engaging in a free-flow of ideas and what ‘feels right’ in movement, choreography and filmmaking.

The emphasis of this workshop will be to create a visual story on film, based on the experiences and responses of site-specific performances.  The versatility of video allows to reach a vast range of audiences, putting Houston and Houston artists at high exposure. Our goal as a collaborative is to introduce screen-dance as another facet of interdisciplinary arts within Houston. We want to share our passion and bring forth new ideas about collaborative art making.
