Tent City 4 Collaboration

The scope of the project consists of a active collaboration
between the citizens of tent city 4, the SHARE/WHEEL organization(s),
and the Summer Institute of the Arts and Humanities. Theoretically the
project has two trajectories-one is a short film, this application
pertains to this particular aspect of the project. Creative control
over the said component of the project will be entirely under the
control of the SIAH for social research purposes. The second component
of the project consists of a photographic installation in the style of
documentary for tent city fours fundraiser; any content or material
derived or used for this component of the project will be created with
equipment provided by the SIAH. The Summer Institute of the Arts and
Humanities operates under the leadership of the the Simpson Center,
the Univerity of Washington, and the Mary Gates Foundation. It helpful
to think of the two trajectories within the project as entirely
disparate. The media created for the film project will be used as
active research in the concept and action of homelessness as it
pertains to transitional housing programs, politics, culture and
community.
