Community Heroes is a community organizing and public art project celebrating the everyday heroes of our neighborhoods.

Local artists, youth, and community members come together to celebrate those dedicated to strengthening and supporting Fort Greene, focusing on long-term historic residents. This is an ongoing annual collaboration with the Fort Greene Park Conservancy and Friends of Commodore Barry Park.

You are invited to nominate your neighborhood hero or collaborate as a storyteller.
