Woodlawn has become an attractive location for new development, specifically to those looking to capitalize on the vacant space and infrastructure across the neighborhood. If you have lived in Woodlawn for 20 years or more, we want to center your ideas for development—what you hope to see preserved and what you hope will change.
Over the next three weeks, we will be collecting these recommendations and featuring them in an audio/photo installation within the community. We hope it will reflect a community’s vision for their own renaissance and the many ways that development within the neighborhood can enrich the lives of the residents who have been committed to Woodlawn for many years.
What to expect:
A pre-interview call
A audio-recorded sit down interview
A photo shoot

Deadline: August 15, 2019
