#Keep Harlem Harlem

 

Signature Blue folding chairs: Chairs are set up at vacant lots  where we hold conversations on gentrification publicly.

CHALLENGE:

  • Harlem community is changing. Some even want to change the name to SoHA and erase the community's historical identity

  • Community revitalization is happening.

  • Many are left out of the conversation.

 

GOAL:

  • To facilitate public conversations using public space.

  • To support the efforts of established community leaders working to raise consciousness around Harlem past present & future.

  • To draw underrepresented talent to our projects.

  • To engage local community in the Human Centered Design process through education.

  • To reclaim space.
