Research with Gehl Institute Yields Powerful Insights

During Summer 2017, NDC was selected to participate in the Gehl Institute’s Open Call: Proposals for Public Life. We spent the summer delving into the research to explore the question, “How does programming impact social mixing in Baltimore’s public spaces?”

Take a deeper dive into the important insights from our research with the Gehl Institute.  Data (and poetry) strongly frame how space activation and cultural programming can make for more equitable places.

NDC’s Director Jennifer Goold presented this work at Placemaking Week in Amsterdam in October 2017.  Watch the video here:
