How Investing in Small-Scale Projects Can Foster Big Change
Collaborative actions are small scale projects that build community agency, engage local voices, and connect to long-term community goals. They include community collaboration at their core, cultivate a seed of possibility, incentivize moving an idea into reality, and fill a gap that there may not otherwise be time or money to invest in. By deploying creative placemaking and participatory strategies, collaborative actions help amplify community engagement efforts while advancing community goals or meeting community needs.
