How To Change The World #2.1: My Neighbor Behind The Wall, Dyna (Documenting Inequality and The Urban Poor Along My Street)
Assignment: Illustrate (using video, slideshow, visual art, song, text, documentation of a direct action, or anything else) an issue of inequality in your neighborhood. You could document either excess or poverty, but in either case, think about whether the inequality is justified or illegitimate. Consider visiting a community institution (a school, a soup kitchen, a country club) to illustrate the issue.
Note: I am currently taking up a course boldly called How To Change The World offered by Wesleyan University (offered for free through Coursera.org) and taught by Wesleyan University President, Michael S. Roth. It tackles major issues facing humanity and it is based on discussions brought up during the 2013 Social Good Summit in NY. I am putting up all my assignments on my blog as well.
