What's hot

Uniting South Kensington through Art and Culture at the American Street Feast

In the late summer heat of a recent Friday evening, hundreds of residents of South Kensington broke bread together in the middle of the street. American Street is a central part of the neighborhood where these diners live and work, yet its recent history as a neglected corridor has led some to call it nothing more than an “eyesore.” The American Street Feast responded to the area's challenges by inviting dialogue, giving neighbors the opportunity to celebrate each other’s cultures, showcasing the area’s diversity, and encouraging collaboration through art, music, food, and dancing. LISC supported the project with a Creative Placemaking grant, funded in part by the Kresge Foundation.
