We had a unique year at Anthony Overton. The Climate and Cultural Resilience Project was an opportunity for us to activate the space at Anthony Overton while also following COVID-19 restrictions. 


The Climate and Cultural Resilience project uses a large scale map installation on the grounds of Overton to create awareness about aging infrastructure, increase of impervious surfaces that ate contributors to neighborhood flooding, and the need for investment in green infrastructure to promote a more resilient and equitable future. The project integrates a map installation showcasing the permeability of Bronzeville using colored watershed zones, and new rain gardens transforming a surface parking area. Through collaboration with local youth and community residents, the project not only aims to raise awareness on the importance of stormwater management, but also to create a shared understanding of our neighborhoods' infrastructure, resources and the possibilities to promote resilient communities.
