Through the Laundromat Project’s Create Change fellowship, I worked with four other fellows and artist Adeola Enigbokan to present The Renters’ Archive: Bed-Stuy Edition, a series of interactive, artist-led workshops to investigate the life of the renter. This took place Sept. 21, 2013 at For My Sweet, a community event space in Bed-Stuy. This was part of the Laundromat Project’s Field Day, which also showcased artists working in the communities of Hunts Point and Harlem.
The workshop I offered was called: If These Buildings Could Talk
Workshop on representing the life of a renter’s building and the layers of neighborly exchange (and conflict). Participants will record and document the buildings they have lived in and their neighborly exchanges in a booklet/poster form with drawing, multimedia, and collage.
