Asking “What if Bed-Stuy was a Black Utopia?” this unique event transforms stoops, storefronts, yards, and sidewalks into vibrant stages for interactive art and performances–uniting artists, homeowners, residents, and businesses in celebrating Bed-Stuy’s rich culture and community. Featured artists are challenged to create works exploring the 2023 theme, sparking meaningful conversations within the community. STooPS’s unique approach of using stoops as stages and offering interactive art encourages attendees to engage with each other, artists, and the art itself, fostering relationship-building.

What is STooPS? STooPS connects our neighborhood with a big ol’ block party, classes, and opportunities for artistic expression in unconventional spaces. We make art accessible while valuing creators and honoring the local.
