Your Block was part of Roanoke's Arts in Parks project from 2014-2015. My original Your Block plan was to spend one day a week for a month meeting with people in neighborhoods throughout Roanoke and using this time to teach them how to research their neighborhoods and create unique histories of thei neighborhoods. At the end of the month the history that the people in these neighborhoods created would be presented in a park in Roanoke.
What ended up happening was that I and two other
people created everything and presented it in four different city
parks over a two year period.For the project I worked with local musician Poe Mac and draftsman Hunter Dickerson
on the concept.
Here's an archive of Your Block images.
