Healing-Infused Mobility Engagement
By replacing competition, politics, greed, and maps, with collaboration, art-making, and empathy, transportation community engagement becomes inclusive, equitable, and meaningful. Place It! creates a safe space for visual and spatial thinkers, youth, women, non-native English speakers, and other underrepresented communities to express their mobility needs in new ways. By using storytelling, objects, and sensory experiences this method quickly builds consensus to find common values, and mobility solutions, using the participants' memories, needs, and aspirations. This hands-on session will teach participants this method and how to apply it to various transportation projects.
