Through an installation featuring oral histories, music, and art, StoryBoards shares the personal stories of residents of Seattle’s Central District.

AWBS' design for StoryBoards was presented at the Seattle Design Festival in August 2023 and will be installed at the Walk the Block arts festival in September 2023.

It includes perspectives on gentrification, as well as stories of innovation, tenacity, solidarity, celebration, art, and beauty.

StoryBoards was created in collaboration with Wa Na Wari and the Shelf Life Community Story Project, as well as artists Yirim Seck and Perri Rhoden.
