A 4 day event entitled There Goes the Neighborhood. Engaging the community of North Park Thursday May 31st through Sunday June 3rd 2012. The series of workshops, talks, installations, performances, and tours, includes an event at UCSD and happenings at the San Diego Museum of Art. This will be the 2nd manifestation of There Goes the Neighborhood, having occurred once before in 2010.
This year the focus of the There Goes the Neighborhood is "the neighborhood" as a nexus of global conditions which manifest themselves in local, everyday, situations. These issues range from transportation networks to means of food production to how information (and knowledge) is disseminated publicly. The first iteration of There Goes the Neighborhood! took place in June of 2010 and focused on issues relating to gentrification and how art can play a role in neighborhood revitalization and can also be complicit in the displacement of existing groups by those moving in. There Goes the Neighborhood takes as its "fundamental organizing assumption the notion that individuals are inherently active, thoughtful, innovative and engaged citizens." So please join us in examining these issues. The project is not complete without your participation!
