About The Program

Acknowledging the unsung heroes of Columbus

Columbus is My Neighborhood celebrates BIPOC individuals’ activism and commitment to their communities. Through a combined social media and public art campaign, the program aims to amplify the faces, stories, and impact of these everyday heroes to the broader Columbus community.

 

Our Story

In 2020, two Ohio State University students, Kendra Asiedu (she/her) and Tori Burton (she/her), in partnership with the Neighborhood Design Center developed Columbus is my Neighborhood, a public art campaign aimed at highlighting the contributions of everyday Columbus residents.

Although Columbus (OH) is comprised of a collection of diverse and unique neighborhoods, we are all part of the broader neighborhood of Columbus. The project aims to bring communities together while they learn more about their Neighbors’ unwavering commitment to improving the quality of life in Columbus.

Columbus is my Neighborhood creates a platform to connect faces to the stories of programming, activism, and contributions our neighbors make that improve the quality of life for all in Columbus.
