Florida Hospital and UCF help Bithlo transform - Orlando Sentinel

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 09:24 -- rprice

McKinney knows the magnitude of the work left to do. An adult GED program is supposed to start soon. The school, now kindergarten through eighth grade, is expected to double in enrollment this fall — if a new septic system is finished in time. There are plans for a hair salon, commercial kitchen, laundry facility and community hydroponic garden, all before year's end. And he has barely begun on Bithlo's two biggest problems: unemployment and the dilapidated trailers that are home for hundreds of its residents.

Artlog

They’ve “pivoted,” exchanging one set of advantages for a different set. Let me explain. The Walker has long been seen as an important place for contemporary art. They’ve staged groundbreaking exhibitions that have traveled far and wide. They’ve also had a rich programming history. Up until now, on their website and elsewhere, what the Walker was doing was always central and was broadcast outward to spark new conversations about the art and ideas around it. This is the model that most museums follow on the web.

'Innovation Hotel' Collision Works Brings Community Focused Development to Detroit

Tue, 11/19/2013 - 07:07 -- rprice

“It is important for people to understand that the stories they hold close, the stories of their lives, are actually very important. These stories remind us who we are, where we come from, and provide valuable lessons, clues, and roadmaps for how we move forward. So much of the city has left in the last 50 years and our stories and history have left with them.
