In 2016, the WHRF recruited Cincy Stories into one of the yet-to-be-leased Trevarren Flats storefronts to create a story gallery. They designed the space to be a neighborhood living room, and invited the community in to take a seat, get to know one another, and share their stories. These stories were recorded, and were able to be streamed on their gallery televisions during operating hours. The gallery space was a temporary pop-up experience, but their work provided lasting impact in the neighborhood.
Walnut Hills was the first neighborhood for their Street Stories project. Their website that showcases the stories of people who have been living in Walnut Hills and their connections to the geography of the neighborhood. As redevelopment and reinvestment occur in the community, it's important to celebrate the people that have made this neighborhood what it is, and continue to drive it in a positive direction.
Visit the project on their website here to experience stories that represent Walnut Hills in beautiful and profound ways.
