Opening Event of Photoville Festival 2021: Stoop Stories: City Kids

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Born in Brooklyn at the height of COVID-19, Stoop Stories™ is a documentary storytelling platform that has created and curated hundreds of features from NYC families, essential workers, small business owners, and activists. Presented with support by Brooklyn Children's Museum (BCM) – which currently houses a large-scale Stoop Stories collection, spotlighting families from around NYC – the Photoville companion exhibit celebrates city kids and stoop play. The opening event will be led by teaching artists representing Brooklyn Children’s Museum Education team, as well as Stoop Stories co-producers, Marj Kleinman & Lara Weinberg. Families can create their own Stoop Stories by writing and coloring in stoop illustrations, which will form a growing art gallery, displayed at the Stoop Stories tent. Kids will also be invited to step onto the stoop and share their Stoop Stories – BCM teaching artists will gather visitors around a mini-stoop to hear children’s Stoop Stories throughout the day. In addition, families can pose for “stoopies” – stoop selfies, on the stoop Coloring sheets are designed by local artist, @drawingabriela. BCM teaching artists will guide children through creative prompts and activities throughout the program, and the Stoop Stories team will be on hand to talk with families about their Photoville “City Kids” exhibit.
