BROOKLYN - Around a dozen performers, designers and dancers used the "stages" to show off their creativity while also collaborating with other artists.

"Stoops" all started with an idea from a local dancer who says she wanted to bring back the culture of hanging out and doing art on the stoops in Brooklyn. Homeowners, artists and businesses all collaborated to make it possible.

Event organizer Kenra Ross says this is the first time she has ever organized something like this. She used her own money along with some generous donations from local businesses.

Ross hopes to plan more events like this in the future, but more importantly, she wants to encourage creativity in the neighborhood every day.
