During the week of Dare to Imagine in October 10-18th 2015, a week of creative actions and events organized by the U.S. Department of Arts & Culture - USDAC (a non-government people-powered arts and culture social justice network), Betty and others in NYC helped organize (4) NYC based large scale events. They collaborated with neighborhood residents and activists to design and structure the content. Collaborations included partnering with artists in East and West Harlem and groups like Picture the Homeless and Brotherhood/SisterSol. USDAC in NYC also collaborated with community-based art groups like The Laundromat Project, Naturally Occurring Cultural Districts (NOCD-NY), and JACK Art Center to hold Dare to Imagine activities.
