The Lennon Bus Block Party is part of the bus’ Come Together: NYC , a tour of peace, love and creativity as the Lennon Bus invites New York to come together to create original music, videos, poetry and art around the “Come Together” theme. The projects will focus on telling powerful and moving stories of NYC immigrants as part of a Cultural Immigrant Initiative through the NYC Council and Department of Cultural Affairs. Their stories will be featured in a compilation of original music and videos, interviews, art works, photos and poetry which will premiere at the conclusion of the tour at an event hosted by the Lennon Bus at the Museum of Moving Image. The initiative has been produced in support of music education and in association with Canon U.S.A., Juniper Networks, the NYC Council, the Mayor’s Office, the Department of Cultural Affairs, the NY State Assembly, Securematics, Other World Computing (OWC) and Kaufman Astoria Studios.
