Do you know someone who is fascinating, who is unique, someone who has overcome struggle, someone who has tirelessly contributed to their community, someone who really represents the North Shore Collinwood neighborhood? Nominate them as a subject for “The Collinwood Growth Project”!
We are creating a grant-funded documentary film where community members nominate the subjects. We are looking for interesting subjects of all different ages, races, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds to represent the eclecticism and cultural diversity of the neighborhood. We will select three to five people from the nominations who together represent the diversity of the North Shore Collinwood neighborhood. We will interview the community members, and talk to them about their connection to the neighborhood, some of the challenges it is facing and about the past, present and future of the neighborhood in order to get a broader understanding of what this neighborhood means at a local as well as at a national level. We will then pair these community members with local musicians or artists to either write a musical piece or make a portrait, inspired by these subjects. At the closing of this project, there will be a free public exhibition of the film as well as of the artwork/musical pieces to celebrate and engage residents in their neighborhood.
Please nominate a member of the North Shore Collinwood community below!
