Additional Collaborators: Kelly Sue Rioux + METRO bus riders

Bus Stop Stories is a mobile public storytelling project that meets + engages riders right where they’re at–bus stops, shelters + on board the city’s buses. Working alongside riders to create and tell their own stories, the project culminates in an immersive tour, where the public is invited aboard a moving bus to listen to audio stories and view portraits, while stopping at temporary pop-up art/bus shelters created by riders. What if–instead of cultivating invisibility–using the city bus created a new modality for an abundance of omitted voices, ideas + narratives to be heard, celebrated + distributed? Bus Stop Stories centers the art and stories of riders to articulate and frame critical challenges and opportunities, while inserting excitement into a moving system.
