1 Stop Family Pop Up @Boogie On The Boulevard!

Boogie On The Boulevard is one of the greatest street events in The Bronx!

There were 5,000 visitors during 2-6pm of the event.

We set three tents among other tents related to health, food and sports. Thanks Rachel!

1. Lactation tent

2. Diaper changing table, Play Yard, Nuts Free table, and Priority seats
3. Healthy Food WS and demonstration tent by Yuki Nagata
Beside the three tents, we also had an art installation by Hiromi Niizeki


This was Yuki’s explanation display about Japanese ingredients for easy and healthy cooking. There were handouts of recipe for cooking at home. 

Yuki showed, explained about garlic soy sauce and gave away sample food that she cooked at site for visitors to taste. There was a WS table people tried to make their own to bring home. Peeling skin of garlic was fun. “Look! I made this! Here is also a tasty sample.”


 This was Hiromi’s POKETTO, an interactive art installation. Many passersby participated in the art project.

She was interviewed to Bronx’s show!


Many visitors used our diaper-changing table. During a toddler was playing inside the Play Area, guardians could participate in our art activities and other events.




You see a shadow of mom who was breast-feeding inside the tent. We were very proud that we could provide private space for many moms.




 
These were Nuts Free table for kids.


Some guardians took a break with our priority seats.

We set our two tents among other tents of green market venders. Visitors enjoyed shopping, participating in art WS, our lactation space, and diaper-changing table. 


She was Ayaka, our guest artist this time!Colorful items in her hands were Scrap Booking for WS!
From small kids to adults enjoyed the WS!

Guardian can enjoy WS during her/his toddler plays with toys inside the Play Yard (right side with green floor)

Enjoy our free workshops and public art while enjoying outdoor event. Bring your family and stay a while - we've got the accommodations!

We are very excited to announce that our One Stop Family Pop Up will be part of Boogie On The Boulevard street event!

August 26th
From 2:00- 6:00pm
Place: Grand Concourse between 165 and 166thstreet, The Bronx

Absolutely Quick, Easy, and Delicious Japanese Cooking at Home!,” Food workshop and demonstration.
Making their own Japanese food ingredients by peeling cloves of garlics and soaking them in soy sauce. Demonstration of how to cook easy and delicious everyday Japanese food at home, using the same garlic infused soy sauce. 
Guest artist, Yukiyo Nagata, japanese-kitchen.net 


By cooking at home regularly, a family can afford healthier and more nutritious meals, and stretch the limited budget. My dream is to have a food van, which can prepare and offer many different cultures’ home style food at different places, particularly at economically disadvantaged area for free. By tasting unfamiliar food, we can physically experience different cultures (regardless within or outside the U.S.). 
America is getting more segregated by income, culture, religion, and race. The upward mobility in the United States is in decline. When this social system is pulling the citizens further apart and pitting the disenfranchised against each other in order to maintain the wealth of fortunate few, the rest of us have to band together and arm each other with knowledge to survive and prosper in the future. 
When many people can’t (or don’t) cross over to see “the other side”, the food van can bring “the other side” to them in order to satisfy the hunger of body and mind. 


POKETTO”, participatory public art installation - "If you could find anything you wished in a pocket what would it be? Write it. Draw it. Leave It in a pocket. Read what others said.” 
BringPOCKETS from your precious old clothes! They could be added on the installation.
Guest artist, Hiromi Niizeki www.niizekihiromi.com

Hiromi asks people to stop for a short time and think about what is important to them and why. Participants may respond to the question by drawing, writing and/or creating small pieces of art work to leave in the pockets. 



Both workshops will be flanked by our One Stop accommodations: A private and hygenic lactation space, a diaper changing and potette area, stroller parking, and a play space. We also provide smaller chairs for children to participate in workshops.

1 Stop Family Pop Up @ Lower West Side!

Hi! We enjoyed a beautiful Saturday at the Chelsea Block Party put on by Infirnity
on 26thstreet, between 9 and 10thAvenue. Thank you, Lisa!

Left is guest artist Yoko’s tent. Right is a lactation space and diaper changing table. A play yard is located between the tents.
Inside the lactation tent, there are chairs, stools, hand pumps, pumping bags, breast pads, a nursing Boppy pillow, ice and a cooler bag to store pumped milk, nipple cream, a nursing cover, and more! Women can feel welcome to nurse or pump in this private, sanitary, (quieter) location.


On the other side of the lactation space, there is a diaper changing table stocked with supplies (and clothes in case of accidents), as well as a potette for older children who are potty training.

The stroller parking area is pictured here.

This is our guest artist, Yoko! The man behind Yoko is her son, Daigo. In the workshop Yoko proposed and led, participants created reusable wraps made with cotton cloth and beeswax. These wraps are used as an eco-friendly alternative to zip lock bags, plastic wrap, or tinfoil to preserve and store food.
Participants picked a favorite cloth pattern.  Yoko then dipped it in melted beeswax.
After the wax cooled, participants shaved the wax to flatten the wraps. 
Daigo supported his mother, Yoko, explaining how participants could recreate the process at home.
Rica recruited passersbys to Yoko’s workshop, explaining what she was doing, how, and why.
Many families utilized the diaper-changing table, including moms, grandmothers, and fathers.
Can you see the outline of a mom breastfeeding inside the tent?

Another mom was changing a diaper outside; the two are kept separate for sanitary and privacy reasons, as we have men change diapers as well. A volunteer high school student was sitting outside to  monitor the tent and answer questions.
 

Christine, who brought her four month old baby to the event, and a pregnant woman and her friend talk in front of the lactation tent.
Thanks to Yoko for the amazing workshop!

Guest artist: Yoko Fukuda
Make Your Own Reusable Beeswax Wrap
Yoko Fukuda was born in Japan. She is a mother artist whose life was inspired and improved by art. She lives with her husband, son and daughter in NY since 1995. Her project promotes using sustainable items for daily life, such as this eco-friendly beeswax wrap.

Join the community event this weekend in LWS!

We are very excited to announce that our One Stop Family Pop Up will appear this weekend at a community event hosted by Infirnity:

Infirnity Community Block Party

July 14th, 12-6pm  Rain or Shine 

26th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues 

The event will have food, music, inflatables, games, arts/crafts etc. 

 

Please drop by if you will be in the area and enjoy a community event made family friendly by our accommodations! (Our two tents will finish at 5pm.)


We would love to introduce our first guest mother artist, Yoko.
She will present a "Make Your Own Reusable Beeswax Wrap" workshop.

Living with sustainable material
Reusable beeswax wraps provide an eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap.
Making beeswax fabric wrap at home is a rewarding project, and a great way to use up scraps of old cotton fabric.
We can use recycled baby dress shirts and crib bed sheets to give them new life.
The wraps adhere to a cup, a bowl or can be used to wrap up a sandwich and left over food.
You can use a baby dress, shirts, etc. that represent your special memories. If you don't want to throw them away, this is a great way to give them new life!


Let’s end plastic pollution! We hope to see you there.
