THE SPACE INVADERS HAVE ARRIVED

They’re saying we’re all neighbors here, aren’t we? We belong here, don’t we? This is our space, these are our communities. We have a right to our catchments, cafes and co-ops. People can move as they please and no one is pushed. What’s the problem?

WHO ARE THE SPACE INVADERS?

Metropolarity seeks essays, fiction, diagrams, maps & multimedia regarding GENTRIFICATION, GEOGRAPHY, INTENTION, COMMUNITY, and SPACE.

Please send clearly labeled submissions to metropolarity@gmail.com by 7/16/13
