Launched in 2005 when working with the US Department of Defense and the Army Corp of Engineers, our Vision to Action program, now called Art for Community Transformation (ACT), helps take community vision for urban revitalization and development, and turn it into action.
Typically contracted by local government, non-profit, community group, consortium/partnership or architects and developers for urban revitalization projects, we provide our services throughout New York City and around the country.
We work with concerned citizens and the community, providing workshops and focus groups to better understand their needs and wants for derelict space and community revitalization. Those needs are then converted into drawings and renderings, which can be approved by the local community. Once approved, those drawings and renderings then become the foundation for delivery of the communities vision, and is the first step to driving community-led development efforts.
In short, we help empower community-led development through the arts.
- Clear vision of communities expectations for revitalization and development
- Working documentation to garner community support, secure funding, and break ground
If you have a community revitalization or development project and need some help pulling together community support, please contact us.
