What will it be like? That’s up to you!

“The history of Somerville, 2010-2100” is a community-focused art project that explores what the future of Somerville Mass. 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 by 2047? 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.

We can be reached at . We hope to hear from you!

All predictions received by December 31, 2009 will be included on our website, and in our printed timeline. Everyone who makes a prediction will get a copy of the timeline.

This project is organized by Tim Devin, and is sponsored in part by the Somerville Arts Council.
