Tell us about a favor you’ve done, a favor someone did for you, or a favor you witnessed and we will add you to the digital Map of FAVORS! For the FAVORS project, artist Priscilla Stadler is challenging the people of Queens and beyond to defy the stereotype of the cut-throat, egotistical New Yorker by doing FAVORS for friends, family and strangers during the month of April 2013.

Check out the other great events at LPAC’s Rough Draft Festival.
