Project Update

Sound Sculptures and Concerts on Staten Island’s North Shore

Ozgur Gungor | April 3, 2018

The idea of creating a robust public art program from outdoor sculptures to murals to music came out of a diverse group of Staten Islanders, who had been contemplating on equitable neighborhood revitalization through regular meetings and developed a set of public space design and policy recommendations as part of our Future Culture project.

Apply for the "Power in Place" Fellowships by December 7

Samira Behrooz | October 26, 2017

The Design Trust for Public Space, in partnership with South Bronx Unite will award three fellowships for the Power in Place: Building Community Wealth and Well-Being in Mott Haven-Port Morris project in mapping, community planning, and participatory design. The fellowship in mapping has already been awarded to Monxo Lopez from South Bronx Unite.

Building on a deep legacy of community organizing roots, Power in Place will make the case for community-prioritized use of land in the Mott Haven-Port Morris area. The project will explore the potential of the Community Land Trust  (“CLT”) as a model for public space and will create a mapping framework and a series of maps, develop a community-driven plan for this neighborhood and a communication toolkit to achieve community-desired outcomes.
