Deathbowl to Downtown documents the shift in skateboarding primacy from the parks and the pools of sunny California in the 70’s to the gritty streets of New York in the 90’s. This transition also foretells the recent hybrid uptake of skateboard culture in Harlem and other communities of color.

Sublime Frequencies

So I meant to post these a while ago, but the website was being worked on at the time.

The wonderful folks from Sublime Frequencies stopped at the space to show there latest videos from Africa! The footage was really transporting and it was a wonderful experience just getting a glimpse into another world. If you ever have a chance to watch a screening I highly recommend it.

You can see a trailer for Olivia Wyatt’s film here. And it looks like they have a kickstarter project page to raise money for a trip to Sudan.
