Rockwood Cultural Asset Mapping : Building Community and Engaging Residents
MetadataShow full item record
This document outlines work done by graduate students in the Public Folklore and Cultural Programming course in the Arts & Administration Department during the Winter term 2010 and provides recommendations to the Gresham Redevelopment Commission for further study. The objective of this work was to build community identity in the Rockwood neighborhood by beginning the process of collecting the cultural assets important to Rockwood residents. Throughout the term the graduate students met with local community leaders in Rockwood to discuss previous community building initiatives and their issues. This information allowed us to understand what problems arise when trying to begin a fully inclusive community planning process.
