Roosevelt Island Kite Building And Flying Workshop At FDR Four Freedoms Park Sunday May 18 - Space Limited, First Come First Served

You're invited to a Build and Fly Kites Workshop at Roosevelt Island's Four Freedoms Park.
Please join Four Freedoms Park Conservancy this Sunday, May 18th, 11:00am to 3:00pm to build and fly kites at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park!

Artist Miguel Luciano will lead free, 90 minute workshops centered on Carribean kite traditions. Participating children and their families will produce handmade kites, personalizing them with text and graphics to form poems and personal statements in the sky as they explore ideas of flying, freedom and community.

Workshop space is limited and participation will be on a first come, first served basis at the following times: 11am-12:30pm / 1pm-2:30pm.

Learn more about this free event here.

Tushevs Aeriels, a specialist in aerial footage capture, will document the kites in flight with one of their home-built remote-control video airplanes.

We hope you will join us on Sunday, May 18th. Bring your own kite for flying too!
