Conexion Americas

Funding Received: 2017
Nashville, TN
Funding Period: 2 years and 1 month

Conexion Americas, in partnership with Transportation for America (which just released an ArtPlace-funded research report on arts, culture, and transportation), will commission artists to lead a series of community design charrettes to improve pedestrian safety in  the Nolensville Pike corridor of Nashville, TN. The corridor is a wide, high-speed road with crumbling sidewalks and an overall design  that prioritizes the movement of vehicular traffic over pedestrians and cyclists.

In partnership with Transportation for America, Conexion commissioned a study to understand the risks of involuntary displacement that may result from their efforts to improve  the Nolensville Pike corridor.
