Local Projects Introduces LISTENERS, a Content Series

Local ProjectsIntroduces LISTENERS, content series about community-driven design and the art of listening.

In 2020, a global pandemic and a reckoning with racial inequity reminded us of the simple importance of listening. That’s why Local Projects is launching a content series exploring the role of listening in cultural work, especially in this time of collective crisis.
