Bridget Bartolini – Neighborhood Portrait Series


The Neighborhood Portrait Series by Bridget Bartolini will be a sequence of city-wide community events that will invite people to come together and share stories about their neighborhood thus creating a “portrait” of the neighborhood as seen by its own community members.

In addition to personal stories, the events will showcase poetry, music, and other art inspired by the neighborhood as well as open discussion forums and participatory activities that offer avenues for all attendees to participate.

The goal is to strengthen community connections and build a neighborly spirit through the sharing of stories and art. The end result will be community-constructed portraits of the neighborhood through video that will be shared via a blog – a living document.
