Learn about Passageways 2.0’s City Thread Project in Cooper’s Alley, a public art project that transformed an alleyway into an active destination for community events like concerts, "silent" DJ parties, movie nights, kids’ chalk parties, and creative classes.

Cooper’s Alley is a public space intended to be used by the community, however, residential buildings, businesses, and restaurants also align the space. How can this public space be effectively managed balancing the voices of the business owners with the community’s interest? Participants will workshop an equitable process for applying to use the space, navigating the business owners' concerns while also maintaining public interest.
