Mobile Workshop Tool Connects Schools, Communities to QueensWay
February 20th, 2014
On February 4th, 50 High School students in Richmond Hill gathered around an interactive map to learn about the QueensWay plan. Together, they learned about history of the site, and shared ideas for future programming. This session –one of a series of mobile workshops– is part of an ongoing effort to bring the project to communities less likely to attend a public workshop. Central to these workshops is the Mobile Outreach Tool, a one-of-a kind portable community engagement instrument that can be used to help explain what and where the Queensway is and additionally, gather feedback from residents and stakeholders.
Led by the Hester Street Collaborative (HSC) and FQW volunteers, Mobile Workshops have been held at the MELS School PTA, The High School for Construction Trades, The New York City Academy for Discovery (Q306), Body of Christ Filipino Christian Church, The Junior Sikh Coalition, and three workshops at the Queens Community House.
