About Open Data Week in the East Village

Via the EVG inbox... from the East Village Community Coalition (EVCC)...
Join EVCC for this week-long festival of FREE community events in celebration of New York City's Open Data Law. From family-friendly live events on the Ave B Open Street, to fun and informative virtual events, there's something for everyone here!

Highlights coming up tomorrow (Saturday!) on Avenue B between Seventh Street and Eighth Street ...

1 p.m. and 4 p.m. 
Join artist Jen Ray and data designer Jason Forrest for an engaging and not-entirely-serious interactive data-art performance on the Ave B Open Street. You've never seen data presented like this!

1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
Join artist Cindy Stockton Moore in Shadow Tag for Open Streets, a creative family-friendly experiment in chalk. Come play with data!
And on Sunday on Avenue B between 10th Street and 11th Street...
Engaging with the Map
Built by BetaNYC & maintained by volunteers, the map has everything you need to safely Shop Local. We created the map to assist our community and support local merchants during the COVID-19 shutdown. What started as a band-aid grew into a labor of love. 

Discover East Village businesses, help support your favorites, and add your contributions to the map. Find the latest hours, specials, fundraisers and more!
Visit the EVCC website for more details.
