Just a quick reminder about our community meeting this Saturday morning at St Nicks Alliance. My colleague, anthropologist Gillian Goslinga, and I are very excited and our 22 students from Wesleyan University are too! We are looking forward to meeting with community members, facilitating a dialogue about pressing issues in the community, and collecting oral histories and other documentation from you and/or your neighbors. We are also planning to screen the film “Metropolitan Avenue” which some of you have suggested you’d like to see.
All of this research will be part of the groundwork for the hut I am about to build at St Nicks out of found and re-purposed objects. Take a look at the attached flyer for more explanation and details on the place and time.
I know that some of you have mentioned that you are not able to make it this Saturday. I wonder if you would continue to help us spread the word, as we’d like to get as broad a representation of the community as possible. And our follow up meeting will be Saturday, April 7, so we hope that maybe you can join us then. Let us know if that’s a possibility.
Many thanks for your interest and support. Gillian and I hope to see as many of you on Saturday as possible!
