Bushwick activism hub MayDay Space is getting ready to host a dynamic community day on the date it takes its name from.
This Sunday, May 1st, which is widely celebrated as International Worker’s Day, a block party with food, music and kid’s activities followed by a cooking class, a zumba class, a film screening and a community dinner will take place at the Bushwick Abbey, the building MayDay space calls home.
The block party, at which the community can help install tree guards along the block thanks to a Love Your Block grant from the Citizens Committee of New York City, will run from 2-5pm. The cooking class, which will be led by Chef Gabriela Álvarez, is scheduled from 4-6, and zumba will run from 5-5:45. The film screening, which also starts at 5, will be of “The Take,” a documentary in English and Spanish about the reclamation of abandoned factories by workers in Argentina. Community dinner will take place from 6:30-8:30; MayDay space requests a $5-20 sliding scale payment per diner.

Happy May Day, MayDay!
