2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Sarah’s neighborhood cinema project, #BoycottTheOscars will take place in Brewerytown, an epicenter of exponentially-advancing gentrification. The screening will bring together longstanding North Philadelphia residents and newcomers – as neighbors – to watch films often overlooked by the Academy of Motion Pictures. Film screenings will be held out of the former Young’s Candy Shop on West Girard Avenue, a location easily accessible by foot and public transportation. The intimate living room style cinema will take place over the course of six months and will create space for both long time and new residents to come together, watch films, and have open and important conversations about gentrification and displacement. Sarah hopes that the series will generate opportunity for positive interaction and genuine relationship building across social divides and teach media criticism and literacy. The project will also train youth in event management and audio/visual technologies, while paying them a modest stipend for their participation.
