Nou La - We Reach!

The Journeys and Dreams of Brooklyn's Caribtropolis

a mixed media, multi-disciplinary, interactive exhibition from Brooklyn Arts Council's Creative Coalitions 






Nou La - We Reach! is an interactive exhibition narrating the story of the Caribbean presence in Brooklyn. The exhibition will lay a platform for contemplation and immersion into the Caribbean migrations that have profoundly impacted Brooklyn’s culture. Launching at the Wyckoff House Museum in June 2018, Nou La pivots on notions of innovation and preservation, migration and displacement, resisting and becoming, and more.

Featuring the work of artists from Brownsville and East Flatbush and beyond and drawing upon the voices of the community, we invite you to be a part of this cultural collaboration as we reflect on the Brooklyn Caribtropolis of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


Call for Submissions

Submit by April 27.

Brooklyn-based artists of all mediums (visual, literary, media, performance, and more!) are invited to submit work for consideration in the Nou La – We Reach! exhibition. Priority will be given to artistic works that reflect on themes of migration and displacement as it relates to Brooklyn and the Caribbean diaspora, but all creative interpretations are encouraged to apply.
