For the past 27 years, Hook Arts Media has proudly partnered with multiple organizations to share resources, services, activities, and opportunities with Red Hook Fest audiences. Activities have usually included scavenger hunts, reading tents, face painting, button-making, poster crafting, and free kayaking on the harbor.

This year, we’ve partnered with a few of the organizations that have been at the front lines of the vital relief efforts in Red Hook. Covid-19 has devastated our city, and we deeply admire the many people who quickly mobilized to serve Red Hook. While we didn’t have the resources to highlight all the efforts, we were able to shine a light on these peoples’ brave work:
