What do you think are the important questions that need to be asked that are essential in order to have the infrastructure of the city reflect the need and wants of the people in the city? What are your answers to those questions?
Join us for a Traveling Chalkboard Workshop on April 23rd, 6-7:30pm at the Cleveland Neighborhood office to get involved in this project were we ask the above questions of our neighbors and community.
Photographer Wing Young Huie and theatre engagement artist Ashley Hansen are using a chalkboard to find out, with a process adapted from Wing’s successful public art project (2010), “The University Avenue Project” in St. Paul where he photographed hundreds of people in various circumstances holding chalkboards on which revealing statements are hand-written.
With the Creative CityMaking Project, Wing and Ashley will give chalkboards to community organizations and individual citizens to find out what are the important questions and answers. Participants will then photograph themselves with their questions and answers and upload them to our website: http://www.createplace.org/
Participants will then pass on the chalkboard to a neighbor to do the same thing, thus winding its way throughout the community.
