The 29th Street Green Arts: Creating PLACE Project will help build civil society, promote cultural understanding and model tolerance by engaging residents of the greater 29thStreet area in a series of community dialogues, hands-on design workshops and exhibitions of banners revolving around critical neighborhood issues.

This project will start in January 2012. Artistic outcomes of the project will include a series of artistically designed banners that reflect the stories and voices of neighborhood residents. These artworks seek to nurture a larger dialogue revolving around issues of bullying, health, violence, tolerance, stewardship and prosperity.
