Today, Friday June 3rd at 5pm, please join us at The Bronx Documentary Center for one of my favorite shows: The Bronx Junior Photo League year end exhibition.
This exhibition is the culmination of an intensive yet free after school photography class where the kids, who range from 11 to 18 years, display their photography and multimedia projects.
Through the hardworking volunteers and staff at the BDC, coupled with our youth’s thirst for knowledge, throughout the past several years, they have churned out quality and professional work that’s beyond impressive for their age.
Join BronxMama at Metro Optics’ flagship location tomorrow at the Throggs Neck Shopping Center at 815 Hutchinson River Parkway for a fun and free and important event on eye health for kids!

When we first started our music program with a handful of kids in 2009 we only dreamed of one day having an orchestra full of youth from the South Bronx. Now, not only does such an orchestra exist but it’s had the incredible good fortune to travel to Venezuela for a week of intensive study and performance with El Sistema, the world-renown Venezuelan system of youth orchestras and choirs that inspired us to start UpBeat NYC six years ago.
The Venezuelan-Bronx cultural exchange continues this weekend when the National Youth Orchestra of Caracas comes to Crotona Park for a free outdoor concert open to the public. The 160-piece orchestra will also be performing this weekend at the United Nations for its 70th anniversary celebration. It is noteworthy that this renowned orchestra, one of El Sistema’s most important orchestral and educational achievements, will be holding its public concert in the South Bronx, a community rich in its own culture but so often overlooked and underserved.
Bronx educators are bringing in meditation into the classroom to help with kids’ emotions and even help improve their attention. Check out what they’re doing to help our youth succeed.
This Sunday from Noon to 4PM is your LAST CHANCE to Boogie on The Boulevard in 2015 for this 3 Sunday summer event which closes off the center lanes of The Grand Concourse between 161st and 167th Street—a full 7 city block stretch—transforming this area into a huge an approximately 4.75 acre recreational space filled with fitness and health activities, art, dancing, bike riding, skating, performing arts and so much more!
This Sunday will also have a special treat for everyone: Morris Perk will be stationed inside The Bronx Museum serving their popular Bronx Blend coffee, limeade, and delicious pastelitos (aka pastelillos aka empanadas) made locally right here in The Bronx supporting other Bronx women owned businesses! (The last two times Morris Perk served all of this deliciousness, they sold out so make sure to get there early before they are all sold out!
As No Longer Empty’s residency and exhibition, ‘When You Cut Into The Present The Future Leaks Out’ at the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse is coming to an end as it enters its final month, an open call is being issued to local Bronx artists to end the exhibition with a big celebration.
