The Wave editor Kevin Boyle and Ideas Wanted columnist Rick Horan will set up a video camera at the VW Dome 2 in the Rockaways (Beach 94th Street) to gather ideas about the boardwalk and other Rockaway needs from Rockaway locals, as part of MoMA PS1’s Open Call for Ideas. A second session is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2nd from 6:30—8:30 PM.
Our “Call for Ideas” launched in February asking for the submission of a three minute video presentation and nearly 150 entries were submitted before the March 15th deadline. Recognizing that not everyone in Rockaway has access to video equipment, MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach has asked The Waveand social media outlet Rockaway Help to assist.
Although the March 15th deadline has passed for individual video submissions, the interviews filmed on March 30th and April 2nd will be reviewed by the contest jury which also includes members of the Rockaway community.
So, bring your ideas!
