Touching Hearts, not Hands:

A Call to Collect Creative Responses to Coronavirus through Poems, Songs, Stories, and Videos!

As we are confronting the coronavirus crisis, the worst catastrophe in many of our lifetimes, City Lore is taking all the precautions we need to. At the same time we are putting out a call to collect creative responses to the crisis in song, poetry, video and other forms. Please send your materials to Jake@citylore.org with the subject line “Touching Hearts, Not Hands.”

WHO ARE WE?

Founded in 1986, City Lore is New York City’s center for urban folk culture. With a mission to foster New York City – and America’s – living cultural heritage through education and public programs, City Lore encompasses a Lower East Side gallery space, performances, lectures, the People’s Hall of Fame, a POEMobile that projects poems onto walls and buildings, and programs throughout the five boroughs. We document, present, and advocate for New York City’s grassroots cultures to ensure their living legacy in stories and histories, places and traditions. We work in four cultural domains: urban folklore and history; preservation; arts education; and grassroots poetry traditions. In each, we seek to further cultural equity and model a better world with projects as dynamic and diverse as New York City itself.
