CHALLENGE GRANT RECIPIENT: [Re]visit [Re]seda

[Re]visit [Re]seda was a series of three open house artwalk events designed to encourage community members to be more invested in their neighborhood. The Northridge Chamber of Commerce, the Northridge South Neighborhood Council, Northridge Vision, Northridge Sparkle, California State University Northridge, the Museum of the San Fernando Valley, and Councilmember Mitchell Englander's office partnered together to use the arts to create a greater sense of ownership over public spaces. The events showcased Flex Furniture pieces, which are collapsible and modular, allowing for mulitple uses as a performance backdrop, temporary art gallery, movie screen, or product demonstration space. The goal of this project was to encourage community investment in local businesses, reduce vacancies, and develop a community gathering place.
