Four artist teams will be paired with five planning projects in the city's Community Planning and Economic Development Department to, "engage artists in critical thinking and art making around City and urban issues and to increase artists' and planners' ability to facilitate community interaction and work collaboratively with the public to foster positive change in the quality and trajectory of social discourse about the city's urban future."
