Join us for a day of unity and appreciation as we commemorate the enduring spirit of immigrants and veterans with The (G)eneration Project. This event honors Staten Islanders from all branches of the U.S. Military. Participants will discover shared areas of commonality through conversation and art making.

New York City, home to a vibrant tapestry of cultures, proudly boasts a foreignborn population representing 38% of its populace and accounting for 46% of the labor force. The (G)eneration Project introduced the concept of (G) Status, ranging from G-0s to G-600, to symbolize the generations individuals or families have resided in the U.S.

This project is made possible by a DCA Premier Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
