It’s officially October in Bushwick which means a lot of fall events to check out this month!
This week’s roundup includes activism, food and all out autumnal fun:
Indigenous People’s Day Symposium in Northern Brooklyn at Bushwick Inlet Park
Saturday, October 6 2018, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
This even may be a little further West than some of our usual picks, but it’s definitely worth checking out. Attendees will learn about indigenous culture and value through workshops that include spoken word, music and beadwork. Registration is required to attend the first few hours of the event. You can sign up here.
