Pecha Kucha Smoketown Presentation: How to be an ally to a neighborhood speech
Last month GRIDS's co-creator Jessica Bellamy was recognized for her great Pecha Kucha presentation on Smoketown. Her presentation got both local as well as national attention via publictions such as Broken Sidewalks and Equal Voice: American's Family Story.
"In an attempt to get to know their neighbors, members of the Jefferson County chapter created, alongside the Center for Neighborhoods, a 51 question survey which they took door to door, collecting information about the wants, needs, strengths, and assets of their new community. They collected over 100 responses, and generated this beautiful report, called Vision Smoketown. To get the word out about their work they also participated in Louisville’s 14th Pechakucha at the Resurfaced space. Many of you were on hand to hear KFTS’s Jessica Bellamy report about work going on in Smoketown, but if you missed it, her presentation is now online, up above." - Broken Sidewalks' Drew Tucker
