THE SNA PROJECT
The Social Neighborhood Art (SNA) Project invited local high school and college students to work with contemporary artists to explore the complex history and vibrant culture of Downtown Santa Ana.
Through a series of public walking tours and workshops at Grand Central Art Center, participants delved into the social and political character of the city, and collaboratively developed an artistic intervention to share with the community. The medium and topic of the intervention was determined by participants, and took place at the end of the workshop series in January 2015.
The culminating intervention Red Line Tours consisted of an Audio Tour through the city’s Downtown inside of an old trolley, chronicling the histories of racism and segregation against latino communities in Orange County, as well as narrating forms of grassroots cultural resistance that have emerged in Santa Ana.
