My name is Abe and I am an artist working on a new project titled "Neighborhood Diaries." What I am doing specifically, is recording the location-based memories of normal Portlanders, just like you and me, and then making free "walking-tour" podcasts that guide listeners through these neighborhoods' seemingly mundane street corners, swing sets, and benches, and communicate the rich, emotional history that make up our surroundings.
Of course in order to do this, I need people to (anonymously) volunteer their memories. So please take a moment to think about your experiences in and around these neighborhoods and try to think of your happiest memories, your saddest memories, funny memories, and any other momentous occasions, and e-mail me at [email protected] if you'd like to participate.
No memory is too small or too large, short or long. I have gotten some amazing memories that I can't wait to share, but I need more memories in order to make this project happen.
Even if you don't want to participate, but would like to stay informed about the project, let me know that too, and I'll put you on my mailing list
Any questions or comments are also appreciated.
Abe Ingle, Portland
