El Zip Code Memory Project busca formas comunitarias de conmemorar las devastadoras pérdidas resultantes de la pandemia del Coronavirus, a la vez que reconoce los efectos radicalmente diferentes que la pandemia tuvo en los distintos barrios de la parte norte de la ciudad de Nueva York. A través de una serie de talleres artísticos, eventos públicos, plataformas de medios sociales y una actuación/exposición en la Catedral de San Juan el Divino, los miembros de la comunidad reimaginan los códigos postales no como zonas de separación, sino como espacios interrelacionados para la conectividad y el cuidado mutuo.

Reflections

Tomie Arai

I am so grateful to be a part of The Zip Code Memory project, which provides a space for us to imagine a future where we are healthy, safe, and happily in community with people who care deeply about the city. After all the isolation and pain caused by the pandemic, meeting in person for the first time allowed me to feel reconnected with the world again. George Sanchez’s workshop was pure joy.

During such a turbulent and unprecedented point in history, it has been a joy and an honor to be a part of a project that sheds light on the impact of this time on the various, diverse communities of New York City while drawing those communities together to heal, grow, learn and hope. Every borough, every neighborhood, every community has felt hardship in this time and the fact that we can all come together with that shared trauma to acknowledge it, release it and collectively see a way forward is a very beautiful thing.

I loved the workshop we had at St John the Divine a few weeks back. The coordinator was an excellent facilitator using some of Augusto Boal’s “teatro del oprimido” techniques. Why? The 18 participants were able to open up, to look at each other as humans with warmth, acknowledgement, and empathy afterwards. We even co-created a couple of suggested projects. I look forward to participating in our next workshop.
