The Bronx Documentary Center, NYC Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice, Claremont Neighborhood Centers, Inc, and Butler Community Center are proud to present “Building the Bridge: Community Gathering & March through Claremont.”

For the fourth in our series of Claremont Illuminated events, the BDC will lead a procession of children and families through the Claremont community as they project photographs of the community on mobile screens and surrounding structures.

We will create an interactive experience by placing various projections and installations within Claremont Village. To build a bridge between communities in Claremont we will collectively work with our partners to organize a night parade through the neighborhood which will be accompanied by a mobile projector that will illuminate photography as we march.

The parade will start at the Butler Community Center and end at the Claremont Neighborhood Center, where there will be a community dinner, Environmental Justice and Gun Violence PSA’s from Claremont Neighborhood Center, State of the Butler neighborhood update, free photo booth, dance and singing performances, a DJ and health resources from the Claremont Healthy Village Initiative.

4-6PM: Event starts at basketball court behind Butler Community Center, 1368 Webster Ave, Bronx, NY 10456
