As part of the outreach for the Southeastern and Encanto Community Plan Updates, M.W. Steele conducted a series of “Pop-Up Outreach” efforts throughout different neighborhoods of the two communities. The Pop-Up Outreach Program was inspired by a desire to reach out to the community in non-conventional ways and a need to establish a stronger visible connection between the everyday spaces and daily occurrences of community stakeholders and the community plan update. The outreach methods employed helped foster a dialogue in the community and engaged stakeholders in a format that encouraged them to think about their environment and the community plan.
The program was composed of three complementary and unique “pop-up” installations:
