Join the Re:Play team as they present on their project for the Reset: Towards a New Commons exhibition.

In Re:Play, young residents of three New York City Housing Authority campuses reimagined their public spaces through play, addressing the need for intergenerational space for healing and gathering. The intersecting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, structural racism, and decades of disinvestment have disproportionately affected the health, safety, and social fabric of NYCHA public housing residents. In this project, young residents describe the toll of these impacts and reimagine their community as a restorative space of gathering, joy, and healing.
