Guided by artist and Lower East Sider, Laura Nova, Moving Stories is an interactive walking tour on the Lower East Side that encourages senior citizens to combine physical movement and memory developed through a series of storytelling workshops and group walks.
Created in partnership with the Weinberg Center for Balanced Living at the Manny Cantor Center, this immersive journey unravels stories of people and places and preserving personal identity, community and connection.
An often overlooked population within a changing neighborhood, many seniors who participate in the project have lived on the LES all of their lives. Others are newer – not only to the neighborhood, but to the United States.
