Art + Design in Public Space Series – Keys to Social Equity

Castle Community
121 N Broadway Ave, Rochester, MN 55906


The Heart of the City team is pleased to invite you to join in our monthly presentation and conversations series on the roles art and design play in creating vibrant public spaces.

The Art + Design in Public Space Series will be held monthly from May to October 2019, with topics ranging from how universal design and access is a key to social equity, to how art and design can reflect local context and values and how to create interaction and spectacle.

This month we will be discussing how universal design and access is a key to social equity.

Within the topic of Universal Design, Katherine Darnstadt founder of Latent Design will be speaking about how people of all abilities need to feel a sense of belonging in a place and how design does that. The design and placement of seating, the space given for mobility, and the clarity of functions within our cities all work together at different scales to make public spaces welcoming to all.

“Incorporating Universal Design principles into our design strategy is integral to the longevity of a public space.”
