The Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design (formerly the Tulane City Center) is looking for a Director to lead its public interest design organization at Tulane University. Beginning with the leadership of Maurice Cox (LF '05) before he was spirited away to Detroit, the Small Center's thoughtful collaboration with community based organizations has resulted in exceptional design work in service to the New Orleans community.
Pop-up Resource Village is mobile and temporary structures that can lessen the economic and social isolation many communities face. It’s “pop-up” civic resources–education, services, culture, and entrepreneurship opportunities–that are necessary to enable under-resourced communities to thrive. And it’s one of 70 finalists for the competitive 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund of ArtPlace America.
The project is the result of collaboration between Designing Justice and Designing Spaces, cofounded by Deanna Van Buren (LF ’13) to support re-entry and diversion programs to end the mass incarceration crisis, partnering with the San Francisco sheriff’s department Five Keys Schools and Programs.
