Public For All: Rethinking Shared Space In NYC.

Tuesday, Apr 25, 2017

Public space is created for—and belongs to—all of us. In today’s political climate, we must affirm and ensure that New York City’s public realm provides places of refuge and play, congregation and demonstration, and dialogue and exchange. Keeping these spaces thoroughly public poses challenges + opportunities at every turn.

We invite NYC community groups, City agencies + individuals across the five boroughs to submit proposals for research, design + planning projects to unlock the potential of our shared spaces, including underutilized and under-resourced community assets.

An information session will hit the essentials: What the Design Trust is looking for, submission process, proposal selection, and project development. Design Trust staff, Board Members, Partners and Fellows will be on hand to answer your questions.

Date: Tuesday, April 25, 6:30-8:30 PM

Location: The Point Community Development Corporation 940 Garrison Avenue, Bronx

Sponsor: Design Trust for Public Space

A moderated conversation will focus on the insider's experience of working on a Design Trust project. Speakers: Sheryll Durrant, Farm Coordinator - New Roots Community Farm managed by International Rescue Committee (IRC), resident Garden Manager at Kelly Street Garden = Design Trust Fellow for Five Borough Farm; Neil Gagliardi, Director of Urban Design - NYC Department of Transportation—Design Trust Partner for Under the Elevated; Jane Greengold, Artist and Design Trust Fellow for Opening the Edge: Reimagining Green Space at Wald Houses; Monica Valenzuela, Deputy Director - Staten Island Arts—Design Trust Partner for Future Culture: Connecting Staten Island's Waterfront

After receiving project submissions, the Design Trust will select a group of finalists, who will present to an independent multi-disciplinary jury in mid-July. The jury will select up to two proposals to become Design Trust projects.
