Subject

Documentary film of artists at 31 Central, Newark NJ.

Description

Development has spiked in downtown Newark,NJ. Old industrial buildings are being converted into high price rentals, the newly built Prudential towers have spurred businesses to open – vegan eateries, coffee shops, Whole Foods, BARCADE! Is this bad - isn't this what Newark has been waiting for? I guess it depends on where you're coming from. If you are a creative person that has been brave enough to navigate and take advantage the spoils an abandon city has to offer- time may be running out! 31 Central is in the cross-hairs. The building has been occupied by artists and creatives for more than three decades, helping to establish an emerging arts community in the Halsey Street area and Downtown Newark. In this video we talk to some of the artists that have had their studio spaces here, and try to see things from their perspective. Featuring interviews with Kevin Merkel, William Oliwa, Jerry Gant, Kati Vilim, Katrina Bello, Stephen McKenzie, Akintola Hanif, and German Pitre
