Partnership for Public Spaces Leads Open Brainstorming Project at THEARC

Early during the summer, BBAR engaged Partnership for Public Spaces to help evaluate new ideas for how THEARC's campus is used through a series of meetings between staff, partners residing at THEARC and community members.

Placemaking board are currently in THEARC's lobby outside of the ArtReach Community Gallery.  The boards incorporate ideas given during the community brainstorming session. It is the hope of BBAR that members and visitors will take part in placemaking activity; they will be able to choose which amenities they would be interested in seeing at THEARC including walking trails,  water features and art installations. Participants are asked to place colored dots next to items of interest. 

Project for Public Spaces is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build stronger communities. Founded in 1975, PPS embraces the insights of William (Holly) Whyte, a pioneer in understanding the way people use public spaces. Today, PPS has become an internationally recognized center for best-practices, information, and resources about Placemaking.
