Designing for Public Engagement: Tour and Professional Development Workshop

On December 12, 2016, Turnstile hosted a Food Cart Tour of the Financial District at lunchtime, followed by a two-part professional development workshop for Public Humanities Fellows at Humanities New York that explored the challenges and opportunities of creating publicly accessible resources and programming with community partners, informants, and collaborators. Using the tour as a common reference point, combined with a series of facilitated activities, workshop participants shared ideas, questions, and concerns about their respective projects, learned about and discussed logistical and ethical considerations for designing and implementing public-facing projects, and reviewed project management tools that support facilitating mutually beneficial collaboration with community partners.
