Artists are often on the frontlines of gentrification, moving into lower-income neighborhoods, making those neighborhoods more appealing to outsiders, and soon enough, being priced out themselves.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
Locals have been playing regular pickup soccer games at Harriet Tubman Elementary in Columbia Heights for years, but the semi-organized groups had never formalized their use of the field with a permit. As the neighborhood has changed, other groups have laid claim to the space, including a bocce club, and more recently, a private soccer league. We explore the challenge of fairly allocating recreation space in a changing city.
