Projectivity was responsible for the Creative Direction for the first annual Illuminate Stapleton neighborhood festival organized by Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership. Permanent art based additions to the neighborhood help connect visitors and residents with the artistic community, including vibrant Stapleton street banners, and photo window installations. During 2015, Projectivity worked with Staten Island Arts to implement a voting panel to award 7 people with the Illuminate Stapleton Community Artist award, providing award funds for them to create mini videos and light installations for the 2-day event in Tappen Park. We also initiated the I AM STAPLETON photo project with photographer Mike Shane, showcasing the diversity in local business owners and community leaders in Stapleton. In addition, over 20 different performers and artists, as well as 7 different venues in the Stapleton area participated in the weekend festival.

Staten Island Arts has some amazing programming going on at their gallery/office site, the Culture Lounge, located inside the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. They recently hosted a mini festival, featuring performances from teenagers in the fields of music, dance, and poetry. SI Arts reached out to Projectivity to see if any of the participants from our youth programs would like to perform, we put the call out and 3 of our talented young musicians came out and rocked the crowd.
