Kelly Huang @ BPL Community
I am grateful for the opportunity to connect with diverse communities in Brooklyn through the art programs I have led in collaboration with the Brooklyn Public Library. Through these programs, I have gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for the cultural diversity of the borough, as well as the chance to learn about the various languages spoken in the area, including Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Arabic. In my role as a teaching artist, I have sought to create inclusive and welcoming spaces for participants of all ages and backgrounds and have incorporated elements of different cultures and languages into my art activities in an effort to honor and celebrate diversity. I believe that art has the power to bring people together and facilitate understanding and communication, and it has been deeply fulfilling for me to use my art in this way. As I continue to lead art programs with the library, I hope to foster even more community interaction and collaboration through events that foster a greater sense of belonging among the people of Brooklyn, with a focus on the Brooklyn Bridge, an iconic symbol of the borough that connects different neighborhoods and communities.
