On Friday, July 18th, Queens Council on the Arts’ 3rd Space is proud to present Amy Wu and the launch of QNSMADE, a web-based project that celebrates the stories of Queens through a series of portraits and interviews. QNSMADE features artists, makers, and doers who were either born and raised in Queens or live in Queens now.
Join us for an inside look at the journey behind creating the site that will officially launch this summer and meet some of the artists featured on QNSMADE.

ABOUT:
QNSMADE is a web-based project for interviews, highlighting individuals of Queens and the interesting stuff they are doing, photography, inspired by Humans of New York, a segment called Humans of Queens to put real faces to the many neighborhoods of Queens (all 30 of them), and a resources page, which will be a collection of Queens vendors, manufacturers, and businesses.
3rd Space at the Queens Council on the Arts is a series of monthly programs that invites local artists to host events to build strong and vibrant artist networks and to creatively lead the continuing transformation of the borough's cultural economy.
