1. The Long Good-bye


    from Mary Vollero Added 14 0 0

    A personal narrative in response to the demolition of the historic Garman Theater and Hotel, built in 1890 in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. Sadly, despite massive community protests and court challenges, the buildings were leveled in January to make way for a new "affordable housing" project. This video is an expression of hope that our town can transform our sadness and work together as a community to save our historic buildings and create new opportunities for arts programming in Bellefonte.

        Nathaniel Corum, Education Outreach Director for Architecture for Humanity, returned this year for another workshop with our students. Nathaniel had them work on yet another real-world project that involves the creation of new housing for a Hopi tribal area in Arizona that promotes sustainable growth and preserves cultural and historical heritage, on behalf of an initiative led by a Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative, which supports culturally and environmentally sustainable affordable housing appropriate to American Indian communities nationwide. Through technical assistance and research of best practices, the Collaborative helps tribal communities reduce their impact on the natural world, gain self-sufficiency and provide solutions for culturally appropriate, healthy and affordable homes.

        • A Georgetown Streetcar Named Nostalgia


          from Sterling Seery Added 35 1 0

          This is a documentary created by Georgetown University undergraduate students for Prof. Bernie Cook's American Civilization III course. The students walked by the streetcar tracks in Washington, DC's Georgetown neighborhood on a daily basis, and yet none of them really knew the story behind them. As a result, they decided to explore the history of those tracks and how they fit into the larger stories of DC and how it was shaped by public transit. In the end, it became clear that the tracks represented many things: nostalgia, technology, history, controversy, and historic preservation to name a few.
