No Bills Selections by No_Bills

No Bills presented audio oral histories about North Brooklyn through listening stations situated in construction fences and on the street. It created serendipitous encounters for passersby, inviting them to engage with the neighborhood’s history while standing at the sites of its developing future.  Starting in the fall of 2010, Yulman and nbART reached out to community members, including long term residents, business owners and community leaders, from around North Brooklyn to record their stories about the neighborhood. From July through September 2011, the project was installed at sites throughout Williamsburg, including the McCarren Park Pool and the Triangle Court construction sites and Ventana244 Gallery.

A closing event for the project was held on  October 16th at  Union Docs  in Williamsburg

No Bills is presented by nbART and is sponsored in part by funding from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council. The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation and the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn provided additional support.
