FTH at HOME: GLOBAL ARTS FOR GLOBAL KIDSwith THE SMITHSONIAN: LATIN MUSICMON-FRI, JUNE 22 – JUNE 26
As our thoughts turn to summer, our FTH at HOME: Global Arts for Global Kids series also shifts from in-depth virtual classes to lighter online learning. In affiliation with the Smithsonian, FTH EDU will be exploring their Year of Music collection and video archive.
This week we’ll focus on Latin Music — examining objects like Celia Cruz’s Cuban Rumba dress and Poncho Sánchez’s congas. Students of all ages will enjoy viewing items from the Smithsonian and then digging in with post-video activities. Flushing Town Hall is pleased to be a Smithsonian Affiliate and hopes you enjoy investigating their collection as much as we do. CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED!

SURVEY #2: FTH Virtual World Dance Camp
Flushing Town Hall Education is developing a low-cost Virtual World Dance Camp for kids and adults (no dance background needed) to explore the joy and vitality of dance forms from NY’s diverse communities. To ensure we are meeting the needs of our communities with this new opportunity, we are eager to hear your ideas and input!
TAKE THE SURVEYTHE CENSUS 2020The 2020 Census is now underway—respond online or by phone at (844-330-2020).
Fill out the census because you count, our community counts, culture counts!
The Census is a count of every person in the United States, and takes place every 10 years. The Census determines federal funding for education, healthcare, public housing, parks, and http://my2020census.gov/culture, as well as our number of representatives in Congress. It’s essential that every New Yorker is counted, and our voices are heard.
The count of each New Yorker represents $3,000 in federal funding each year, and our fair share of over $650 billion is at stake. If we are undercounted, our community could lose seats in Congress, which means less of our voice in Washington on decisions that affect our future.In the 2010 Census, the response rate in NYC was only 62%, while the national average was 76%. We lost vital federal funding—we can’t let that happen again.The Census is safe and secure—it will not ask for the following information: social security number, political beliefs, immigration status, or financial information. All information you share is kept confidential and protected by law.
