As a Community Outreach Member of the Kensington Alive Web Site project, I gathered information from community residents and merchants. I learned the importance of community relationship-building. Meeting members of the community and learning their stories, made the market more intimate than my past experiences in radio.

Kensington Market became a map of faces; of real people, not just store fronts and addresses.
