U District ‘Museum Without Walls’ Seeks Community Input

Do you consider yourself a community activist? Have you ever participated in a political or social protest? Do you have a story to tell about activism in the University District? These are questions being asked by the University Arts and Heritage Committee as it begins a project called University District Museum Without Walls.

The committee is organizing an exhibit about social, political, and community activism in the University District, and they’re looking for contributions from people who were involved in such activism. The exhibit will feature the period of activism between 1965 and 1975, but the committee welcomes stories from all eras and wants to hear from people of all ages and all backgrounds about how activism, tolerance, and community involvement has helped make the University District what it is.

Anyone who has a story, or would like to get involved in the project, should contact Julia Swan at julia.swan@gmail.com. To learn more, or to contribute online, go to http://museumwithoutwalls.udistrict.org/.
