Event description

Description

** AICP 2.5 CM-credits APPROVED **

Living Los Sures is a project of UnionDocs, a center for documentary art based on the Southside of Williamsburg since 2003. The project documents the story of the Southside, named Los Sures by the neighborhood's Spanish-speaking population. It defines place as many stories told together. As planners we define place by its physical boundaries, buildings and land uses. We communicate our understanding of place through maps, data, fact and figures. What can planners learn from stories?
