By purchasing your copy you will be directly supporting Literacy For Environmental Justice and The EcoCenter. All Proceeds go directly to support their programming!

Visitors brought their copies of this book to the galleries and used it as their own personal journal of the project. There are blank pages for writing and drawing thoughts and for adding more images later.

The Project:
The Welcome To The NeighborHOOD Project is a community arts project by Wendy Testu: A collaboration with artists Robert Larson, Keba Armand-Konte, Taylor Neaman-Goudey, Eve S. Mosher, Sam Slater, Monica Jensen and youth from Literacy For Environmental Justice. A residency over the past year has lead the participants to create work about their personal experiences, gentrification and displacement, the opposing forces of man vs. nature, art as activism, the positive people and influences in their community and the environmental and social justice issues facing the community of the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco.

The artwork has been installed in interactive fort installations for the Sargent Johnson Gallery in the African American Arts And Culture Complex, Zeum: San Francisco's Children's Museum and Art 94124 in San Francisco and next year will travel to The EcoCenter in Herons Head Park (San Francisco’s first public %100 off-the-grid building).

This small book shows our process, documents the journey we have been on and will be continued with additional volumes.

These small books document the journey we have been on with the Welcome To The NeighborHOOD project, a community arts project by Wendy Testu. A collaboration with artists Robert Larson, Keba Armand-Konte, Taylor Neaman-Goudey, Eve S. Mosher, Sam Slater, Monica Jensen and youth from Literacy For Environmental Justice. A residency from 2008-11' has lead the participants to create work about their personal experiences, gentrification and displacement, the opposing forces of man vs. nature, art as activism, the positive people and influences in their community and the environmental and social justice issues facing the community of the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco. Every meeting was filmed and photographed in order to create these books and a documentary film. To serve as a reminder of the process we went through and ultimately to reflect upon what we learned from each other.
