Scope and Contents:
Neighborhood Change is a broad-based initiative that looks at change in urban neighborhoods and communities from the perspective of community residents and stakeholders. The Neighborhood Change project investigates, documents, and presents research on how residents engage with stake holders and decision makers around changes in their immediate urban environment. Community-based documentation and research efforts for the project include oral history interviewing and community survey and mapping projects. An important part of the work is to build networks to share perspectives and discourse about historical and cultural dynamics that are seen and felt at the local level. Museum research into issue and themes of change that resonate within urban communities seeks to encourage and facilitate residents in urban neighborhoods to make links and connections between their communities and other urban centers.
The collection thus far include images documenting the built envirnoment in Southeast, Washington, D.C., and interviews with community residents.
