First Planning Meeting
The Spring Arts in the Parks event will be designed with artists and the park's community. Several planning meetings leading up to the event will involve brainstorming, collaboration, and collective decision making from the planning committee!
Pop-Up in the Park
25 people joined us for Scudder Park’s Pop Up Gathering on September 25, 2019. Rising Youth Theatre facilitated an activity and discussions with residents about their memories of parks, and invited residents to write and draw their memories on a “River of Life.” Members of Rising Youth Theatre also performed short re-enactments of people’s memories in parks, accompanied by live musicians.
In Spring 2020, all Tempe residents were invited to fill out community surveys that shared information about their communities identity, their interests in different arts activities that they would like to experience in their park, and an opportunity to provide additional comments about their community or Arts in the Parks.
