“The Future of Sunset Park: Through the Voices of Immigrant Stories” an interactive media project by Betty Yu

“The Future of Sunset Park: Through the Voices of Immigrant Stories”, is work-in-progress web-based project. The project will highlight short 4 to 6 minute videos featuring Latino and Chinese immigrants, workers and residents of the Sunset Park neighborhood. Each video spotlights the resident as they talk about their migration to the U.S. and their journey to living or working in Sunset Park.

The goal of the project is to allow a creative space for everyday people of all ages who are impacted directly by immigration and changes in the neighborhood to have an outlet to express what Sunset Park has meant to them and what their hopes are for the future. It will be a forum for community members and the general public to hear the rich and varied stories of Sunset Park’s residents and workers.

"El futuro de Sunset Park: a través de las voces de historias de inmigrantes" es un proyecto basado en la web lanzado por Betty Yu con el apoyo de la Fundación Dedalus. El proyecto contará con cortos videos de 2 a 3 minutos que contarán con inmigrantes latinos y chinos y residentes en el vecindario Sunset Park, permitiéndoles una plataforma para contar su propia historia de inmigración y el viaje que los trajo
a vivir o trabajar en Sunset Park.

El objetivo del proyecto es permitir un espacio creativo para la gente común de todas las edades que se ven afectadas directamente por la inmigración y los cambios en el vecindario para tener una salida para expresar lo que Sunset Park ha significado para ellos y cuáles son sus esperanzas para el futuro. Será un foro para los miembros de la comunidad y el público en general para escuchar las historias ricas y variadas de los residentes de Sunset Park.

“日落公園的未來:通過移民故事的言辭” 是一個, 江敏詩, 創辦的網絡項目。項目中會放映兩、三分鐘的短片,給拉丁、華裔移民者、日落公園社區的鄰居一個媒體台來說出他們自己的移民故事、來到日落公園居住或工作的遊記。
 
項目的目標就是提供一個創意空間讓所有年齡的普通人、受到移民或社區變化影響的人有方法表達日落公園對他們的意義,還有他們對未來的希望。會成為一個讓社區成員於公眾都能聽到日落公園居民豐富多樣故事的論壇。

This project has been developed through Betty Yu's artist residency at International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York City with support from Dedalus Foundation. Check out photos from the ISCP Open Studios on April 21st and 22nd, 2017.
