Harlem EatUp! May 19 – 22 Serves Community


Welcome to the second annual Harlem EatUp! Festival. This four-day festival invites you to see and taste all Harlem has to offer from the artists of the kitchen, the canvas, the stage and the streets. Come Dine In Harlem! for a one-night-only multi-room dinner party for the ages, hit The Stroll, where Harlem’s food, art and culture will converge or observe culinary masters at the EatUp! Main Stage.  With all of this and more, you need to be in here!
When friends and founders of the Harlem EatUp! Festival, executive chef, restaurateur and Harlemite Marcus Samuelsson and veteran event marketer, Herb Karlitz, put their heads together about celebrating Harlem they couldn’t be stopped. Three months later, together with the sage insight and support of Harlem business tastemakers and residents, they would announce Harlem EatUp! to the world!
As part of its mission and dedication to Harlem, the Festival will donate proceeds from ticket sales to Harlem Park to Park and Citymeals-on-Wheels. Respectively, both organizations continue to provide a positive and direct impact on the community through small business support and feeding Harlem’s home bound elderly.

Harlem Cycle Grand Opening Reception April 30th

Harlem Cycle

We love Harlem Cycle!  You’re invited to celebrate with them for their Grand Opening Reception on Saturday, April 30th at 4:30 PM

This party is to also unveil our Harlem-themed mural which is the centerpiece of our studio decor. We are excited to work with Lance Johnson, a talented artist who we believe will highlight the Harlem flavor for our studio and we’d love for you to be one of the first people to see his art-work designed  for the Harlem Cycle studio.

We look forward to seeing you and yours on the 30th. Kindly let us know if you plan to attend. We would love to meet you in person and celebrate our passion for all things Harlem together.

NY African Film Festival Kicks Off with Town Hall


The 23rd edition of the New York African Film Festival kicks off at Film Society of Lincoln Center (FSLC) on Wednesday, May 4 with a preview town hall meeting on Sunday, May 1. The festival runs at Film Society through May 10 before heading to other venues around town.

Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow is a powerful program that helps bridge perceived differences between people and transforms strangers into family.

People of all backgrounds are invited to bring family photos (on phones, Ipads or traditional prints) to the event for a chance to be one of the selected individuals asked to share their family stories, and in the process discover the links that underlie our common humanity as their photos are projected on a large screen for the audience. Those who want to come and simply watch the event as audience members are welcome too.

A special Art & Activism: Personal Journeys panel discussion with creatives from the African Diaspora including Thomas Allen Harris, photographer Delphine Fawundu, musician Ayoinmotion and actress-educator Malika Lee Whitney will follow the interactive family reunion.
