Project Description

The Trenton Project is a collaborative documentary investigation by the Princeton University course, URB 202: “Documentary Film and the City,” taught by Alison Isenberg and Purcell Carson since 2013. The class works in partnership with Trenton residents, institutions and community partners to produce short films which together offer a kaleidoscopic lens on the challenges Trenton faces, its ambitions for the future, and the many ways Trentonians are working together to weave and repair the fabric of their city.

The course is part of the Program in Urban Studies and supported by the Community-Based Learning Initiative, a University program which connects Princeton classes with partners in the community, and the Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities.
