Challenge

How might we provide people who are moving an accurate impression of what a neighborhood looks/feels like, thus preventing them from relocating to a location that is wrong for them?

Results

100 Days Action, a collective for creative resistance and community building was formed. We built a calendar of daily-crowdsourced resistance gestures that could be carried out either at home or in the world. At the end of the 100 days, we featured over 152 actions, published 14 poems and three chapbooks, participated in three residencies, and curated three exhibitions. 

Although there have been changes in the approaches and scope after the 100 days, the collective has remained active to date. It still weaves community around the values of unity, diversity, love, solidarity, and peace through the arts.
