What we're doing

SEE / CHANGE is a video art project that puts a human face on how population change and revitalization are affecting the Park View and Pleasant Plains neighborhoods of lower Georgia Avenue in Washington, DC.

 
 
 

How we're doing it

Video portraits of community members will be projected in storefronts and on street corners along Lower Georgia Avenue NW during FotoWeekDC from November 12 through November 20, 2016.

Mobile projections will take place on a different wall every night from 5 to 8 PM. Follow @pinklineproject on Twitter to find us each night.

Welcome to DC Workshop

November 19
Location will be emailed to you after you RSVP.
4 - 5:30 PM

Welcome to DC, a community workshop developed by Holly Bass|360, asks the question, “What does it mean to be a good neighbor in a rapidly changing community?” This program brings together long-time DC residents with newer residents to discuss the changes they’ve observed during their time in the District, and to share things they wish the other group knew. Participants then pair up to create wood burned, decorative door signs with “welcoming” themes pulled from the group discussion. The workshop will be facilitated by Mel Harper.
