February 7th, 2018 @ Seattle Public Library, Central Branch
Currently in Seattle, a growing number of projects are exploring intersections among public histories, inquiry and community activism. This is no doubt in reaction to the immense scale and rate of displacement, disruption, and reconfiguration of both built and social environments through ongoing processes of urban development and transformation. The aim of the People's Geography of Seattle Project is to help forge connections between these different projects, bring them into conversation with each other to identify emergent common interests and questions, and facilitate cooperative support for ongoing development of these projects according to their priorities.

DesignFest 2017 Block Party: "Did You Notice?", Sept. 9-10, 2017
Interactive installation in partnership with Miller Hayashi Architects at Occidental Park. Did You Notice? is a structure that conveys the design review process through a series of thresholds representing memory, public action and comment, and proposed development - and prompts passersby to engage and ‘densify’ the final threshold with opinions of how the public process can better serve the Seattle community. Feedback left at the site was then shared with City Council during their 9/11 meeting on Design Review modifications. More info here.
Rising Up: A Queer Social Justice Musical (with images from Vanishing Seattle)
A Black Trans Woman exits a failing long-term relationship and re-enters Queer Community through her new residence at a Queer Co-Op House in the Central District. As Seattle continues forward with its rapid changes, the characters are impacted by and experience displacement but find survival, support, and tenderness with each other.
