Arch Month: Boxville - Creating a Just World (CE)
April 15

Offered as part of Virginia Architecture Month.

Join AIA Northern Virginia and The Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association at the Athenaeum for a jointly held virtual event on the award-winning short film Boxville: Creating a Just World. The film was awarded third place in the 2020 AIA Film Challenge. You will hear directly from the film-maker Asia Taylor and the president of the Boxville Association about the importance of this project to the neighborhood it serves and how the process of documenting it through this short film has been a tool to highlight the value of similar community initiatives.

Storytelling has always been integral to the work of architects in community-based projects and the medium of film-making is expanding this tool and the ability to connect with wider audiences through social media and other forms of digital outreach. Programs like the AIA Film Challenge continue to encourage architects, film-makers, and their clients to capture unique stories to share with others through the creative medium of film-making.
