Mapping a Movement / Stories from the Grassroots Struggle Against Foreclosure



A CAPSTONE PROJECT BY RYAN DUNN with special guest: Kelly Creedon

April 9 - 13, 2012

Augusta Savage Gallery

Since its onset, the housing foreclosure crisis has devastated cities across the country. In Massachusetts, the crisis represented an incentive to organize: to stand up, to fight back, to defend one's neighbor and to redefine what it means to be a part of a community.

This project was inspired by the Bank Tenants Associations of Boston's City Life/Vida Urbana, Springfield's No One Leaves, and the other organizations that have stood up to the banks to help people stay in their homes. The show will demonstrate the impact of the housing crisis from a macro scale to the individual; from the systemic issues of the housing market to the very human side of defending oneself and one's community.
