Nine winners have been chosen by Healthfirst in the first-ever “Don’t Be a Bully” contest. And this Saturday (June 7), their artwork will be unveiled in a community mural at the Grand Street Settlement-Beacon Community Center (145 Stanton Street).
The event kicks off at 1pm and performances from NYC Arts Cypher founder Charlie B. and his team, along with appearances by other Lower East Side community-based organizations, will follow in the schoolyard.
Last month, Healthfirst, along with NYC Arts Cypher and The Association of Latino Business Owners and Residents (ALBOR), sponsored the anti-bullying campaign, which encouraged kids (ages 7-16) to showcase their artistic talents while drawing upon a no bullying message.
A total of 63 kids from three Lower East Side settlements—Grand Street (80 Pitt Street), Henry Street (265 Henry Street) and University (184 Eldridge Street)—contributed sketches, drawings, paintings, and more.
