NORTHSIDE: An Oral History Publication and Installation

Nancy Musinguzi will develop NORTHSIDE, a photo-documentary series featuring interviews and images of innovative Northside youth. Northside will follow three North Minneapolis youth and capture the essence of the community through their eyes. The final outcome will be a two-pronged public art presentation. The photo-documentary series will be published online, and a series of large-scale wheat-paste illustrations inspired by the youth’s stories will adorn public community spaces.
