How have our experiences of our homes and local surroundings been impacted by forces like housing policy, gentrification, and redlining throughout history? Further: how can uncovering these histories lead us to shape positive social change in our communities? This event will bring together artists, storytellers, and housing experts for a rich exploration and small group discussions on the places we call home. Featuring Walis Johnson, Barika Williams, and Ariana Allensworth. Moderated by Dr. Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani.
Radical Mapping: Making Meaning in our Communities (April 15 & 16) is a virtual public program exploring how Black, Indigenous, and POC communities can creatively use practices like cultural asset mapping, cartography, and archiving to invest in and make meaning of our neighborhoods. This three-part event will gather artists, historians, mapmakers, local leaders, and community members. Together, we will learn how mapping concepts and methods can democratize decision-making processes about our neighborhoods' preservation and sustainability.
