in 2015, resident of Kensington came together to tell the story of their community through poetry. Through a series of public workshops taught by Motivos ( http://www.motivosmag.com). People were encouraged to explore what they loved about their neighborhood and what they want to change. NKCDC commissioned this film as a way to mark the launch of their North of Lehigh Neighborhood Plan and to document the neighborhood in its current state. This Kensington community North of Lehigh is a community full of possibility, yet confronted with intimidating problems. It is a poster-child for the problems that face North Philadelphia but also an intimate community of residents who have rolled up their sleeves to tackle the challenges that impact their lives builds upon the strengths of the community and calls for continued collaborative action to transform a neighborhood beset with vacancy to a community that, in the words of residents, will become a joyful and inviting green oasis that fosters innovation creating jobs and inspires the rest of Philadelphia to follow suit.
