Artist and community activist Tim Devin has put together a collection of ideas about the future of Somerville.
“The history of Somerville, 2010-2100” is a community art project that is exploring what the future might be like. Both the book and the website present what we’ve found by talking to Somerville community members about the future. In the book and website, you’ll also find official government plans, think tank vision statements, and various ideas and concerns about the future from various other sources.
The Timeline section presents this material as a single timeline. In the Predictions Archive section, you’ll find the actual predictions that community members made.
We’ll be collecting predictions until the end of the year. If you’d like to make a prediction, please email Tim at [email protected] . All participants will receive full credit for their images, concepts, stories, and data. All material received by Dec. 31, 2010 will appear on the project’s website and in the final version of the book.
This project is organized by Tim Devin, and is sponsored in part by the Somerville Arts Council. The project is also on Facebook.
