Last Day of ‘Habitats: Celebrating the Revitalization of the Historic Gowanus Canal’

Artists, scientists, community organizers, and cultural commentators come together to create a collective vision of a sustainable habitat. Instigated by Eidolon Culture, Habitats provides a model for dialogue between urban developers and environmentalists through conferences and panels, participatory and collaborative art, and educational programs. With community efforts leading to cleaner water, the Gowanus Canal area has experienced an increase in wildlife and the prospect of commercial and cultural revitalization. Habitats celebrates this process.
