Staten Island was host to this year’s Punk Island as part of Make Music New York. Its still one of my favorite events of the year to cover – though I think I preferred the contextual discord of previous years at Governors Island.
“buildOn’s afterschool youth service programs mobilize urban teens to lift up their communities and change the world through intensive local community service and by building schools in some of the poorest countries on the planet. We are a movement of students, educators and communities. We believe in the power of partnerships that passionately act for the common good. Through our afterschool programs, teens inspire people across neighborhoods, across cities, and across continents to reach and think beyond their realm of possibility.”
This video montage of the work was projected for the first time last night at Brooklyn Blogfest 2011.
