On February 29th, from 1-3 PM, The Coder School Bayside will be holding an open house event to introduce our coding camps/classes. As STEM becomes more prevalent in our society, children are being introduced to new technology at a faster rate than ever. We want to foster and inspire passion to the next generation leaders of tech in a creative but most importantly, fun way. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please join our open house session! We also offer a FREE 1 on 1 trial class for your kid to see if the program is a good fit!
Celebrate Women’s History Month this March! Bayside Historical Society invites you to a screening of the film, “The Journey,” a documentary that chronicles the experiences of Istrian women’s emigration to America in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Directed by Olivia Rutigliano and produced by Maria Santalesa, President of the Histria Association for Women, the film weaves together the interviews of 22 women to tell the story of this important national migration and the unique home these women made for themselves in New York.
Opportunity for discussion will follow the film. Light refreshments will be served. Cost is $5.00 for BHS members and $10.00 for non-members. RSVP at https://www.baysidehistorical.org/events-1/film-screening-the-journey.

Disease Thrower is the final work of a performance trilogy based on Gaudalupe Maravilla’s autobiography. The first part, titled The OG of Undocumented Children (performed at the Whitney Museum in 2018) told the story of how Maravilla became an undocumented and unaccompanied child immigrant. The second part, titled Walk on Water (performed at the Queens Museum in 2019), focuses on Maravilla’s past as an undocumented immigrant, the deportations his family endured, and methods for healing. The final performance of the trilogy, Disease Thrower, will center on how the trauma of Maravilla’s border crossing manifested into cancer and the ways he overcame the disease.
Disease Thrower is commissioned by Knockdown Center and presented in partnership with The Chocolate Factory Theater. Commissioning support also provided by The MAP Fund. Support also provided by the Franklin Furnace Fund supported by Jerome Foundation, The SHS Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
