WeHome gets strangers talking in the rapidly changing Nashville neighborhoods of Wedgewood Houston, Chestnut Hill and Napier. We ask people to tour each other’s lives and tell each other stories, and we capture their interactions on a podcast. Now that the season has wrapped, we’ve pair visual artists with community members to create something based on the WeHome episodes that speak to them most. Our work will culminate with a community celebration at WeHome Day.
