    Taking it Uptown: Art for Change

    On Friday I took the hike uptown to East Harlem for the Art for Change “Noche Clandestina.” Tucked away in an unassuming basement gallery, the night was full of art, spoken word, and a special burlesque performance by Brown Girl’s Burlesque. Art for Change encourages the advancement of progressive social change by using art as a catalyst for disseminating information to people. Artists used various mediums to convey experiences, struggles and aspirations, inspiring people to consider, with a questioning eye, their ways of life, their environment, their roles, how various systems work, and ways to improve their lives and environment.
