#MAKEDCWEIRD

Make DC Weird

A conversation and a provocation about the city we love, the city we have, the city we want. The phrase "MAKE DC WEIRD" inspires questions and dialogue about those proudly unique things we want to celebrate with our neighbors, and about the role of arts and culture in a changing DC.

Proceeds are dedicated to commissioning new works by DC artists engaged in this conversation.

Oral Histories/Oral Futures
(for Funk Parade)

A collaboration with sculptor Alex Braden and curator Seshat Walker. Phone booths in six locations reveal site-specific audio from DC's Black Broadway oral history archives along with speculative flash fiction about the 23rd Century. All inspired by observation, historical research, and conversation with our present-day neighbors.
