A new Kickstarter campaign from Yukie Ohno, the historian behind local historical blog The SoHo Memory Project, seeks to open a popup-historical learning experience to help preserve some of the history found in SoHo.
I plan to design and build a portable historical society that can navigate the bustling urban environment of today’s SoHo while showing a glimpse of its past. […] My long-term plan is for The SoHo Memory Project to have a physical space where people can come to learn more about our neighborhood. But before I can apply for grants to sustain my project for the long-term, I need to produce something tangible that I can bring to funders to demonstrate my knowledge and commitment.
The campaign has about 3 weeks left to meet the $20k funding goal, and it is already about 65% of the way there. Backers can get a variety of rewards starting from a simple placement of your name on the website.
