For Locals By Locals


ECS plays host to a repeating series of events, featuring neighborhood talents and providing artists with a platform for presenting their creations. Starting with the expanding community of Crown Heights, 'For Locals By Locals' is a performance based event on Wednesday nights. The series features local eats, buys, musicians, painters, comedians, film producers, poets, fashion designers, photographers, dancers and graphic artists.

The performers are curated by the Hoover Dam Collective, a group of young artists based in Brooklyn, NY who's particularly interested in making work that crosses the boundaries of traditional art disciplines.

 Each week the performers are profiled by staging a photography session and an in-house interview, these profiles are the used to promote the artists in all our social media efforts.

For Locals By Local events happen in bursts of 4-6 week intervals. Each week on Wednesday evenings we are bustling with locals socializing, learning and experiencing their neighborhood in a fun new way.

Join our group on Facebook to stay up-to-date on all the artists and dates, the events are 18+ and all are welcome.
