Love & Loss in Hi Fi

Starting May 6th, we’re kicking off 2 weeks of free, public events for Love & Loss in Hi Fi!

Love & Loss in Hi Fi is a 5-part series that celebrates Historic Filipinotown’s history and present – while contemplating its future. It’s a platform for residents and those with a connection to the neighborhood to engage in conversations around neighborhood change, development, displacement, and gentrification.

Each event in the series will invite attendees to sit down in front of a video camera to record their (your?!) stories about the neighborhood. These videos, and any other materials shared with us during the events, will be added to an evolving online archive of the neighborhood.
