Culture and Neighborhood Frames

(p.42) Chapter Three Placemaking
Live and Let Live

Evelyn M. Perry

University of North Carolina Press

People make and remake places through the stories they tell, the descriptions they fashion, and the working theories they develop about a particular place. Collectively constructed perceptions and shared interpretations shape how insiders and outsiders act on and within places. This chapter introduces two prevailing neighborhood frames that residents use to make sense of Riverwest. Some residents see diversity as the defining characteristic and central strength of the neighborhood. They believe that Riverwest’s diversity, culture, inclusiveness, and right to self-determination need to be nurtured and protected. Other residents are focused on the neighborhood’s potential. They believe that increased homeownership and responsible economic development will stabilize and improve the neighborhood.
