Dallas Designer Social Recap

On February 24th, [bc]’s Dallas office hosted our first Designer Social of 2016. That evening, Michael Crummey and Ashwin Toney shared about the work of Perkins + Will’s Social Responsibility Initiative, and [bc]’s Isaac Cohen unveiled the plans for a new pilot project that is part of the Little Free Libraries / Libros Libres Initiative

We are excited to learn about the numerous opportunities for designers, architects, landscape architects, planners, and artist to get involved in community-based projects; and to share about local programs doing great work. To understand more about the existing network of local community-based projects and programs, we asked attendees to answer two questions - what opportunities and resources exist for community projects, and what are the barriers preventing you from getting involved? 

You can continue this conversation and help us grow our collective understanding of local efforts! Submit your own answers below, and check out responses collected during the social at the bottom of the page.

We would like to invite you to complete [bc]'s Request for Qualifications! By completing the RFQ form, you will be able to get involved in community-based projects and events through [bc] programs like Little Free Libraries and Activating Vacancy

The second Dallas Designer Social is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27th. Mark your calendars! We hope to see you there.
