Placemaking and Identity

Private Grant-Funded Public Art Placemaking in Jacksonville

Our chapter recently refocused our chapter goals to start with a laser-like focus on North Florida, since that is where our chapter co-chairs live and have the most influence. Our plan is to build up the presence and voice of the experiential design community in this area to start a groundswell of interest that we hope to see ripple out through the rest of Florida.
