“My end goal through everything I do is to create true public spaces for healing, knowledge exchange and individual and community uplift,” says public historian Tatiana M. Daguillard. “I keep that at the forefront of my work. It’s important to keep voices alive. It’s important to honor voices that have been historically disenfranchised. That’s what I do.”
Daguillard is the project manager for Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency’s History and Culture Trail, which shares and celebrates the rich history and culture of the neighborhoods, businesses, and people living in the areas surround the Capital Cascades Trail and FAMU Way Extension projects.
Blueprint addresses the community’s pressing infrastructure needs by building projects that support community envisioned facilities, alternative transportation, passive recreation and wildlife-habitat preservation.
In partnership with the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA), the History and Culture Trail project is now accepting original public art submissions to complement the trail’s educational kiosks now through Dec.10.
