Celebrating its 9th year, STooPS uses art as a catalyst for community building by fostering meaningful interactions between neighbors, artists, businesses, organizations, and attendees. This is an all-ages, family-friendly event that includes a variety of the artforms that make up the foundation of New York’s creative scene such as dance, theater, poetry, and the visual arts.

Hosted by America’s Next Top Model Winner, Model, Author, and Artist, Naima Mora, this year’s festival will be headlined by the ground-breaking performance ensemble Urban Bush Women. Other New York-based performance artists showcasing their work include: Kendra Foster (Grammy Winning singer), Kendra J. Ross (choreographer), Mere (Visual Artist) Olivia Lemon/Mut’Sun (Visual Artist), Rachel Watson-Jih/Blue Morph Collective (multi-disciplinary arts), and DJ Toni B. Ziedah Diata and Kai Diata Giovanni will offer high-quality participatory experiences to the community to catalyze connection and relationship building. Energy Healer Hadiya Barbel will cultivate a place of mindfulness and wellness for participants in the garden space. Bridges: A Pan Afrikan ARTS Movement will lead a series of children’s based arts activities in the STooPS Kiddie Korner.
