The New Manhattan Project: A Concert for Nuclear Abolition
27 November 2023
On 27 November 2023, during the Second Meeting of States Parties to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, Youth Arts New York, ICAN and NYCAN are hosting a concert highlighting NYC's history with nuclear weapons. With Sam Sadigursky as music director and Noah Diamond as tour guide, The New Manhattan Project: A Concert for Nuclear Abolition is a journey to discover the nuclear legacy that New York City uniquely claims. Short videos of sites on the Nuclear NYC Map interweave with live performances by Sam Sadigursky, Nathan Koci, New York Taiko Aiko Kai, and MARK Harmony, a group of young singers from the Marshall Islands whose families were exiled due to devastation caused by US nuclear weapons tests on their homeland. The concert will highlight the creativity and activism in NYC that fuels the movement for nuclear abolition. Tickets are available for purchase online.
