On BronxNet: The Future of the Bronx

The legendary Rhina Valentín hosted me on BronxNet’s OPEN last Friday, where we discussed the history of the arts in the Bronx and what we should prepare for as the rest of the city eyes our borough, which has been designated as the location of the “next arts scene”. All of this will be discussed this Wednesday evening at the Bronx Library Center (6:00-8:00pm), where Latino Rebels founder Julio Ricardo Varela (former Bronxite) will host myself, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, interim director of En Foco Bill Aguado, and actress Liza Colón-Zayas for Live From El Bronx: a discussion about the Puerto Rican community in the Bronx and in NYC. This conversation will explore our history, the context(s) of the newly-coined “piano district,” and other topics relating to gentrification and the arts.
