  • (1:53) “Everyone is very supportive of each other, it’s more of a ‘build each other up’ community than a competitive, fighting-over-resources kind of community. And I think that’s what makes it really special compared to other cities and other places.”

  • (10:33) “We’re going to take art and put it in a public place? People are going to light it on fire and throw it in the street.”
