Urban Homesteading

Hello All,
Come check out our project in front of Union Docs on Saturday, Nov. 3rd.

The Urban Homesteading Project

The Urban Homesteading Project explores the act of making temporary public living areas as a means for creating positive interactions within a community.

Through the creative utilization of discarded, donated and traded living resources, the UHP seeks to promote non-exclusive spaces for public discourse and leisure, while maximizing the potential of our city’s vital street economy.

The Urban Homesteading Project will create a temporary residence on the sidewalk near Union Docs for twenty-four hours, starting at dawn on Saturday November 3rd, 2007.

Please join us for a day and night of collective relaxation, discussion, games, storytelling, cooking, crafts, aerobics, napping and celebration of our vibrant community. We will be arranging a temporary living room, dining room, kitchen and sleeping area and we need your help to fully furnish our public living space. We urge you to bring furniture and household items that you want to discard or trade, as well as food, beverages and artwork that you want to share.

Starting at dawn on Sunday, November 4th, every single item brought to the temporary living space will be available to all for the taking.

Below is a list of suggested items to bring:
– blankets, pillows and sleeping bags
– tables and chairs
– lamps, extension cords and power strips
– rugs
– forks, knives, plates and cups
– pots and pans
– books
– games
– musical instruments
– personal artwork
– food and beverages
– working televisions, stereos and DVD players

Laura Chipley, Francisca Caporali and Pilar Ortiz created the UHP in 2007.

Hillevi Loven and Union Docs curated this event.
