South Central Waterfront
Project: Creative Public Engagement in and around the SCW
Role: Creative Collaborator with former planner Alan Holt. Co-collaborator/workshop support: Emma Schmidt
Partner: City of Austin Planning Dept.
Approach: Site specific events that generated crowdsourced content that populated a final resource/field guide.
In collaboration with Alan, Ann and Emma created a series of public engagement events that invited participants to explore and document the SCW on foot. Each gathering began with a short set of instructions and was followed by an exploration/documentation period. The project culminated in a printed guide that the City would distribute at future SCW events. It included a complete map of the South Central Waterfront stitched together from participants’ hand drawn maps, a brief history of the area, interactive games and scavenger hunts.
