Description/Abstract

"The citizens of Georgia have been empowered with new opportunities to participate in their own governance through fair elections and the right to hold political demonstrations. I contend that the production of a new type of urban 'theater' can invoke a new political activity. This version of place making requires the ability to 'assemble' at a local and national scale for social and political expression. The program must absorb traditional customs as well as provide the 'playing field for new opportunities to voice political goals."
