In 2017, ART x LOVE won a Knight Cities grant for @PLAY, a 24-neighborhood, 18-month series of interactive art challenges designed to bring diverse people together and encourage deeper community connections through creative acts of play.
We use a combination of sensory mapping, brand equity analysis, quantitative and qualitative study to distill key insights from in-person observations, interviews, and experiences with local residents and stakeholders.
We study neighborhood history, walk and bike every street, intercept local residents, and interview key stakeholders.
We explore, develop, and test creative concepts with residents to find solutions that will improve local quality of life.
We focus on long term impact and work with local artists, businesses, and authorities to get things done the right way.
Neighbors can be teachers, builders, magic makers, and pioneers. They are the creative agents that fuel our success.
