Neighborhood Watch: Projection Walk, is pedestrian tour of projected art produced and curated to be shown in neighborhoods. It is also a way to promote a reinvigorated sense of community, as well as provide a venue for artists to produce work for a public art event, with hopes that similar events could be reproduced in neighborhoods across the country.
Our name is inspired by the official Neighborhood watch – a group of citizens working with law enforcement officials to prevent crime, and keep communities safe. This organization is not a replacement for those organizations already in place. Though, NHW Projection Walk works in many of the same ways; encouraging you to know your neighbors, promoting pride and awareness of where you live, and thriving through community grass-roots organization… we hope to keep this project focused on the relationship between communities and art.
