What will the future hold for Somerville? We’re trying to figure that out, and we need your help!
“The history of Somerville, 2010-2100″ is an art project that explores what the future might be like. If you’d like to participate, please let us know any of the following:
1. What do you think (or hope, or fear) you will personally be doing in the future? And when you think it will happen by? (Will you buy a condo in Union Square in 2043? Will you have twins in 2011? Will your unborn child become a famous pianist in 2074?)
2. What you think (or hope, or fear) Somerville will be like in the future? (Will there be hi-rise apartment buildings in Davis Square? Will the plague strike? Will your neighborhood be gentrified? When?)
Tell us a story! Draw us a picture! Make us a map! All participants will receive full credit for their images, concepts, stories, and data; they will also receive a copy of the illustrated timeline that we will produce.
We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org , and our website is here .
We hope to hear from you!
All information received by June 30, 2009 will be included in our presentation at Davis Square’s Artbeat Festival in July 2009. This presentation will include a lecture; a Future Information table; and an illustrated timeline that you can take home with you.
All information received by December 31, 2009 will be available for all to see on our website.
