CATALYST INITIATIVE PILOT PROJECT REPORTS
This is the first series of reports on the Catalyst Initiative, a program of the Center for Performance and Civic Practice.

CATALYST INITIATIVE: ARIZONA
In this project, artist Elizabeth Burden, based in Tucson AZ, engaged a small collective of local artists to work with several Tucson organizations — each of which addresses public transit and access-related issues in the community. Their work together focused on creating a public engagement strategy and online platform called Transit Talks aimed at bringing the public into dialogue with public and private decision-makers around public transit culture and options in Tucson. Their story over a year of collaboration is one of multi-disciplinary public acts, civic dialogue, and a culminating invitation from a major local player in the transit ecology to continue and grow Transit Talks as an ongoing public engagement strategy



CATALYST INITIATIVE: LOUISIANA
In this project, artist Nick Slie, with his collaborators at Mondo Bizarro and ArtsSpot Productions, all based in New Orleans, worked with Gulf Future Coalition, a culturally and racially diverse group representing fishermen, cultural workers, and more, who live and work on the Gulf Coast, from Texas to Florida. Their work together focused on using the original show Cry You One as a launching pad for a series of dialogue salons in five states to raise awareness of coastal issues and ensure local participation in decision-making regarding the allocation of Federal dollars coming to the Gulf Coast via the Restore Act.
