The Weave is proud to join the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery in presenting Weaving the Streets & People's History Archive (WSPHA), an interdisciplinary citizen journalism project focusing on the ways in which ordinary people use public space to express themselves. WSPHA includes "Weaving the Streets" investigative blog posts hosted by the Weave as well as curated contributions to a growing People's History Archive of physical artifacts gathered in the streets. Our student and alumni contributors have covered a diverse range of issues in many locations, from popular protests and squatter movements in Madrid to street art in Costa Rica to "selfie" culture in Thailand. This work is sponsored by Crossing Boundaries, an interdisciplinary humanities project at St. Lawrence University made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
