Community-based design process
Graham Projects prioritizes a community-informed process in which stakeholders provide guidance and inspiration for impactful public art. Based on public input our team develops a range of design options that we share at community meetings and online. Using public feedback, we adapt designs to community preferences. Graham Projects then works closely with city agencies and property owners to secure all necessary approvals and permits to safely and seamlessly execute public art installation.
Placemaking is a collaborative effort to improve public spaces through participatory planning, physical improvements, and creative programming. Graham Projects recognizes that neighbors are the true experts on public space. This is why our process starts with caring conversations in the community. In order to Make Place Happen, we listen to a diverse array of partners. From residents and workers to elected officials and developers, public artist Graham Coreil-Allen and his team work closely with local stakeholders to strengthen place. Our process entails identifying local assets and challenges, collectively reimagining the possibilities of public space, making creative improvements, organizing inclusive events, and evaluating outcomes.
Successful public spaces are shaped by the policies and practices of our local governments, companies, and nonprofits. When a place needs more than just public art and placemaking to succeed it's time for community action. Graham Projects works with diverse stakeholders to affect change at the block, neighborhood, and city level. Public artist Graham Coreil-Allen and his team support local leaders on addressing the strengths and needs of communities through sensitive engagement and creative communications. Be it through listening sessions, community walks, storytelling campaigns, or public events, we work to ensure that those in power are serving the people and their places.
