In November, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) and Brooklyn√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Dreamers co-hosted an exciting event in MoCADA√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s gorgeous new space. Formerly housed in a Bed-Stuy brownstone, MoCADA is one of the earliest new arrivals in the BAM Cultural District.The mood was lively as members of both organizations mingled, f√É¬™ted and viewed MoCADA√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s moving exhibit – Tom Feeling√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Middle Passage: White Ships, Black Cargo.
What made this evening truly exceptional was that it marked the inaugural collaboration between Brooklyn√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Dreamers and a Cultural District resident.
Amid the festive atmosphere, MoCADA√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Founding Director, Laurie Cumbo, and TFANA√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Founding Artistic Director, Jeffrey Horowitz, introduced their respective organizations and shared their excitement for the growth of the Cultural District.
Look for more exciting events with Brooklyn√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Dreamers in the future!
