I came across this text while falling down the rabbit hole doing research online late into the night (of course). If this was a party invitation, it would be the best ever.
The immediacy conveyed completely connects with our work on W Rockland Street, which I hope to write more about soon.
The text is pulled from curator Ruth Keffer's introduction to the exhibition, DIY Urbanism: Testing the Grounds for Social Change, presented at the San Francisco Planning + Urban Research Association, quoted by Mimi Zeiger in the essay, The Interventionist's Toolkit on Design Observer, which is where I came across it. More than enough good stuff in Zeiger's essay, which is part of a series, offering interesting take-aways in every installment.
I like what this says so much that I threw together the above graphic for a little impact (with hope that a real designer will take this and make something even better and more shareable) but the words stand alone.
An invitation -
where: the city
how: do it yourself
