In community building, arts work, and life, there are lots of contradictions. Sometimes these seem especially prominent when you realize you are both an individual and a part of a greater whole. How do we take care of ourselves, but also our neighbors, our communities, the cities where we live... the world. We’ll have a facilitated exercise exploring how we can “move from the overlaps.” Inspired by @vent_diagrams!!
What happens when residential homes become spaces for art? How does this impact the neighborhood? How is this different (or the same) in South Africa v. the U.S.?

Do you want to learn more about how you can become a small real estate developer for a project in your neighborhood? Are you an advocate or local leader looking to encourage better buildings in your community?
Monte Anderson has slowly worked to improve his neighborhood in South Dallas over the last 30 years. He'll discuss how to cultivate the neighborhood you live in through development.
