2008 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Rika will use video and photography to document personal stories about places, events, activities, and people with a connection to the name "Strawberry Mansion." She will explore a variety of places with this name, including the historical home, the high school, the health care center, the hip-hop dance club, the seniors social club and the neighborhood. Storytellers will include members of disparate groups connected to the name "Strawberry Mansion," people who may not otherwise feel they have anything in common with one another. Rika will also connect with young local artists who are interested in film, and work with them to make videos about their stories. Through the exhibition of these stories and portraits of the storytellers, Rika aims to create an opportunity for members of the community to explore an expansive and diversified perspective on Strawberry Mansion.
