Harlem Renaissance Jazz Garden

How might we contribute to youth community pride and intergenerational unity in the Renaissance Playground neighborhood?

In 2015, City 2.0 created The Harlem Renaissance Jazz Garden, a community group galvanized in partnership with the Jazz Foundation of America, the City Parks Foundation, NYC Parks & Rec, Harlem Village Academy Middle School Student Council, and Countee Cullen Community Center.  

 

"Once we spent some time with the kids, it changed everything for me.  I wanted to find out everything I could and figure out how to get them what they need."                                                          -Alex  '17  (Harlem Renaissance Jazz Garden, and ArtSpark)
