Join Sarah, Elizabeth M. Price of Upchurch Architects, Brantley Hightower of HiWorks, and Karen Lantz of Enter Architecture | Lantz Full Circle in Fort Worth on Friday, November 8th for the “4 under 40” panel.


NEA Announces E-Storybook!

July 17, 2013

Along with the 2013 Our Town grant recipients, the National Endowment for the Arts announced the Electronic Storybook project! GO collaborative, as prime firm / project manager and lead researcher, is leading an amazing consultant team to create the online resource for Creative Placemaking professionals, policy makers, and the public-at-large!

Creative Placemaking (CP) has been a growing field for the last twenty years and a programmatic focus for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) since 2009. Having identified the need for an accessible  and comprehensive resource for CP practitioners, policymakers, and the public-at-large, the NEA sought to develop a practical guide and source of case study information in an online format. This interactive resource will serve as both a catalog of projects supported by NEA funding and a toolkit for planning and implementing CP projects in communities. The project will launch in Spring 2014!

GO collaborative has partnered with Hyperakt for Graphic / Web Design and Branding, and Entermedia for technology integration.
