Waterpod™ at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park Educational Programs Schedule
Waterpod open hours include Friday: 3pm-7pm, Saturday-Sunday 11am-7pm.

Week-Long Daytime Art/Dance Residency August 9-16: Waterways is a collaboration carried out in the converged areas of science, architecture, media, music and movement. This collaborative research will culminate in public actions surrounding the theme of water in Brooklyn.  The research process will take place aboard Waterpod™ in the cove of Brooklyn Bridge Park, with the first public action taking place at Waterpod™ on Saturday, August 15. The development of this Brooklyn-based project is supported through iLAND, Inc’s iLAB Residency Program, and by the generous support of The Danish Arts Council. The collaborative team includes choreographers Karina Dichov lund, Klara Elenius and Emma Nordanfors of E.K.K.O, media artist Lucy Hg from The League of Imaginary Scientists, environmental researcher David Garin, architect Annie Kwon, and composer Matt McBane. By focusing on the exchange of their practices and developing a common process, the group will develop interactive scenarios and perform community-based actions. They will arrive all at once at 8 am and leave at 4 pm daily.

Severine from The Greenhorns: The Greenhorns is a documentary film that explores the lives of America's young farming community -- its spirit, practices, and needs. As the nation experiences a groundswell of interest in sustainable lifestyles, we see the promising beginnings of an agricultural revival. Young farmers' efforts feed us safe food, conserve valuable land, and reconstitute communities split apart by strip malls. It is the filmmakers's hope that by broadcasting the stories and voices of these young farmers, we can build the case for those considering a career in agriculture -- to embolden them, to entice them, and to recruit them into farming.
