After our recent eviction in October, Flux Factory is setting up house (again) in our beloved Long Island City, Queens!
We’re excited to report that we’ll be occupying an 8000 square foot, 3 story building just two blocks north of Queens Plaza at 39-31 29th street. We’re working with the wonderful HWKN design team to create a multi-purpose arts center with galleries, studios, and production facilities.
The new Flux Factory will still be devoted to producing collaborative projects and providing affordable work residencies for artists. We’ve got wonderful projects coming up in 2009, including our famous bus tours and a grande science fair! And of course an inaugural show once we’re done renovations.
You can check out photos of the new space here.
We’ve got a lot of work to do- and we want your help! We’re working in the space every Tuesday through Saturday from about 10-6, sometimes later, from now until mid-July. We need volunteers to help with all aspects of demolition and construction. Come ready to learn all about how to renovate a building using green techniques and recycled materials, or spend an afternoon showing off your superhuman sheetrock skills for a good cause. We’re also looking for administrative volunteers to help us with different aspects of running a sprawling non-profit, like alternative materials acquisitions, event production, mailings, and other fun office stuff. We’ll make you lunch, give you beer after you’re done with the sledgehammer, and have so much fun together. All levels of ability, from 98 pound weakling to master carpenter, are welcome and encouraged to come by for as much or little time as you’d like.
