#StickyQuestions partners with existing organizations, programs, institutions, artists, events and initiatives to curate participatory pop-ups, asking questions that encourage participants to express their on answers multi-colored stickers. The stickers are then added to the Living Innovation Zone creating a community response wall that invites curiosity and learning more about one's neighbors.
#StickyQuestions is a flexible, yet structured project that can be shaped by the needs of the partner. Started as a response to a commission by the Asian Art Museum as part of their Art/Lit Living Innovation Zone (LIZ), #PrayersAbove has also partnered with SFBATCO, CounterPulse, Sunday Streets, Downtown Streets Team, Central City SRO Collaborative, and Miss TANGQ and Jyun Jyun. As a result, #StickyQuestions has become a youth arts project, a professional development program for street outreach workers, a set design element for multi-media performance and a healing arts space rooted in bearing witness.
For the Asian Art Museum, artists Amable, Tamayo-Lee and Jason Wyman are working with their Art Speak high school internship program to teach social practice art engagement, public installation, and neighborhood-based inquiry.
