thinkEAST: Living Charrette to Shape a New Creative Community

Fuse Box Austin (Fusebox Festival)

Funding Received: 2014
Austin, TX
Funding Period: 1 year and 5 months

Austin, TX is home to a former brownfield. The site has been remediated and is ripe for development. In preparation for this coming development, the thinkEAST living charrette would unite Austin's creative communities, city planners, developers, and local residents, to envision and prototype a creative district of affordable living, working, learning, exhibition and performance activity in East Austin. The living charette took place as part of Austin's renowned Fusebox Festival in April 2015.
