East Nashville in District 7
Joe Nolan was awarded $4000 to work with project partners to promote #PikesProject to East Nashville neighbors from November 2016 – April 2017 using a variety of media, meetings, live events and an exhibition. Community meetings are planned throughout the East Nashville and Inglewood neighborhoods to promote #PikesProject on Facebook and Instagram encouraging neighbors to document their neighborhoods' hidden and historic beauty by adding their own photographs and captions. East Nashvillians will be asked to participate directly in the image making and posting of their pictures to social media. A number of neighbors have already made great suggestions and offered various information and expertise during the process of organizing my initial community meetings, and the artist is counting on this community to continue to be a part of the organizing of this project in this informal organic manner.
