Activating Vacancy is an art and public interest design initiative in the Tenth Street Historic District of Dallas.
Currently based in Texas, Tammy Gomez is a literary performer and playwright/director. As award-winning poet (Best Poet of Austin, Austin Chronicle, 1997), she has performed throughout the U.S., and in Mexico and Nepal. Her poems and essays have been anthologized widely, including in the Brooklyn Review, the Yellow Medicine Review, and Bicycle Love (Breakaway Books, 2004). She has lived in the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado, completed an introductory Permaculture Design course, and trekked up to see Mt. Everest in Nepal in 1999--all of which have shown her ways of living conscientiously on the earth. She is an urban gardener who has not owned a car in five years, and bicycles everywhere.
