Bank Suey is a volunteer-run, community space located in the heart of Hamtramck, at the corner of Joseph Campau and Caniff.
We host layered programming-- a combination of unique events along with other organizations that call Bank Suey home.
What happens when residential homes become spaces for art? How does this impact the neighborhood? How is this different (or the same) in South Africa v. the U.S.? Join us for a discussion between Palesa & Siphiwe Ngwenya (Maboneng Township Arts Experience, South Africa) and Gina Reichert & Mitch Cope (Power House Productions, Detroit) to explore what it means to build community at the neighborhood scale through home housed art and performance.
In community building, arts work, and life, there are lots of contradictions. Sometimes these seem especially prominent when you realize you are both an individual and a part of a greater whole. How do we take care of ourselves, but also our neighbors, our communities, the cities where we live... the world. We’ll have a facilitated exercise exploring how we can “move from the overlaps.” Inspired by @vent_diagrams!!
