What drives our work
Great cities happen at the intersection of engaged communities, innovative solutions, and responsive, equitable policy.
We focus on creating experiences. We work in middle spaces. We connect potential ideas to do-able solutions. We invite all kinds of people into the conversation. We build civic infrastructure. We explore ways to connect people to the place they live in meaningful ways. We try things. We get a little political. We get really creative. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much but it's what we learn through the process that matters.
"We must free ourselves from our tendency to see cities as their buildings, and remember that the real city is made of flesh, not concrete."
-Edward Glaeser, Triumph of the City
