Pollyanna Library (2017–) is a research infrastructure operated by non-profit organization 221A.

Description

Notes on Political Ecologies (N.O.P.E. 2016) was an institutional experiment that assembled a collective of artists, writers, and researchers, and invited them to appropriate 221A’s exhibition space as a site of communal study between May and August 2016. The collective convened twice a week to plan and carry out an investigation into the institution’s intimate surroundings: Vancouver’s Chinatown and Downtown Eastside. These overlapping neighbourhoods have historically been a vital nexus of struggles for immigrant and working class power, Indigenous sovereignty, and the right to housing. At present, this contested terrain is besieged by a campaign of resurgent capital investment—‘economic revitalization’, or eviction, displacement, and gentrification, in brief force.

The books, documents, and ephemera were gathered in the course of the collective’s study to produce a ‘cognitive map’ of Vancouver’s current political conjuncture. Bringing together materials including international case studies of urban planning, social housing design manuals, and printed matter produced in local campaigns for ‘the right to the city’, the collection is intended not only as an interpretive device for understanding Vancouver’s permanent real estate crisis, but moreover provide the tools to transform the present.
