Are we involved in decision making in our neighborhood?
Or let’s put it this way: how important is it for us to be involved in decision making?

(My) neighborhood interrogates the connection we establish between our living space and the urban environment in which we live. In relation to this interrogation process, the series of events generate a platform to reveal our thoughts. Inspired by the idea of “hanging clothes”, an on-site installation took place in Güzelyalı Park with the active engagement of participants.
(my) neighborhood is a project composed of two stages: research and react. Meanwhile the former phase comprises research about the socio-spatial environment, it embodies two methods in order to answer the questions below:
Do you have the right in decision making in your neighborhood?
Would you be actively involved in processes you may want to change?
First output is a 3 minute video collage prepared with the answers of the neighborhood residents given to the questions above. Second is a survey related to various neighborhoods of Izmir which is available both online and offline.
