Cincy Story Mural: The Cincinnati Neighborhood Story Mural Project

From Public Allies Cincinnati:

The Cincy Story Mural is a new project dedicated to celebrating the greater Cincinnati area’s people and cultures through collaborative art and storytelling.

Cincinnati is often referred to as “a big city with a small-town feel” for the many overlapping connections that exist within the community. We hope this project will work to strengthen existing relationships and facilitate new ones in a sustainable, lasting way.

During the project, personal photographs, stories, and videos will be collected that reveal the narratives of the people, places, experiences of each of Cincinnati’s communities. And, in the Spring of 2012, a map of our city will be transformed into a mural and installed in locations throughout Cincinnati for everyone to enjoy. Because our dynamic communities are always growing, an interactive online version will be created with photos, videos, and stories added by you, your families, and your friends.

With 52 unique neighborhoods and more than a dozen independent municipalities, there is a lot of work to do before this dream becomes a reality. Please join the effort -- Your ideas, your memories, your stories, and your passion are what this project is made of. Help tell the story of our city through the eyes of the people who live here and call Cincinnati home.
