Artist Aisha Cousins will be asking people to create an open-ended “if this, then that” collectively generated story about a young woman named Anise who decides to move into the walls of her beloved home rather than move away with her family when gentrification strikes their neighborhood in the early 1900s. Anise remains in the neighborhood as it changes and eventually undergoes another wave of gentrification – the one we are experiencing now. This exhibit is part of Writing On It All, a participatory writing project open to all interested members of the public.
