“New York Fun Exchange” (aka “Occupy Wall Street”)

Maybe you’ve heard the rumors…September 17…occupy Wall Street…but what is it exactly?  Well, it depends on who you ask; but for some of us artists and cultural creators, it means aesthetically taking back one of the most important public spaces in New York City for the people of New York, for all Americans, and for the fun-loving citizens of the world.

How do we do that?  Well, take a marketplace that, in a post-9/11 world, has been reduced to a boring tourist zone where no one really feels welcome, and open it up to laughter and excitement by making beautiful music/poetry/performances there!  To top it all off, why not invite some real people as well?  (yes real people just like you!)

On September 17, 2011, we are calling for public artists of all varieties to join us – if you can make it or create it in a public space, then we want you there.  We have many activities including spoken word, drum circles, performance pieces, and participatory art planned so far, but all are welcome.

We’re calling it the New York FUN Exchange!  (I almost wish we could call it a “Why Can’t Wall Street (come out and) Play? Fair” but maybe I’m just obsessed with double entendres.) We shall let our glee resound from wall to wall to wall…of the Exchange!

If you would like to coordinate your your own creative adventure with us, please contact DeBored at debordwalk[at]gmail[dot]com with “New York Fun Exchange: Artist” in the subject line.  If you would like to volunteer to help us with our activities, please email DeBored at debordwalk[at]gmail[dot]com with “New York Fun Exchange: Volunteer” in the subject line.

All hands are welcome!  (Also, if you are just waiting around in your room surfing the internet waiting to hear what will actually go down on, maybe just think about coming to find out for yourself.)  Let’s get occupied on Wall Street on September 17!

Make sure you bring your fun-loving puppy too!
