Nuestro Lugar: North Shore
Nuestro Lugar: North Shore is the first resident-designed, culture-driven, community development project in the rural, migrant community of North Shore, California. Nuestro Lugar co-locates physical improvements (a community-designed 5-acre public space and a bike-share program) and economic activities (a small business training program and a monthly marketplace) alongside a series of multi-faceted arts and culture initiatives. Nuestro Lugar maps and uses the many historic, cultural, and artistic resources of North Shore as catalysts for change. Through various artistic "situaciones" and interventions, residents shape their community and its new public space. In the process, they build strong cultural networks, create new forums for organizing and capacity-building, and re-orient community narratives. The many components of Nuestro Lugar work together to enable residents to improve physical, social, and economic quality of life, while re-defining the identity of their North Shore.
