East Boston Senses: Field Trip + Listening Tour with ZUMIX’s Radio Street Team + Write Rhythm


WhoBrittany Thomas, the ZUMIX Radio Street Team + Write Rhythm

Description: Through this field trip and listening tour, ZUMIX’s programs, the Radio Street Team and Write Rhythm, will share youth perspectives on housing, displacement and the meaning of home in East Boston. ZUMIX youth think gentrification is a big issue, which has many implications for young people, and wanted to know: how are youth feeling? how much do youth know about what is happening to our neighborhood? In this Listening to the City tour, ZUMIX youth will share images, audio and original songs that represent their lives in East Boston and some of the development’s impact on our neighborhood. We hope this experience will illuminate some of the often unheard and unseen angles of gentrification.
