Dept. of Play: Storyship


Storyship prototypes an alternative means for public contribution to urban planning

A public storytelling initiative, interactive sculpture and film festival on Carson Beach, Storyship is a collaboration with the Boston art collective, Department of Play as a culmination of their yearlong 2016 project development partnership with the Andrew Square community of South Boston.

Over fifty residents and business from a diverse group of Andrews Square communities documented their lived histories and personal stories, perspectives that are usually overlooked in traditional urban planning and redevelopment initiatives in light of the release of The City of Boston’s Redevelopment Plan for South Boston.
