Wellness, Environmental Awareness, and Wayfinding: New Design Grants

Wellness, environmental awareness, and wayfinding are just some of the watchwords for our latest batch of Design Grants.

The Attic Youth Center will receive a programming and site feasibility study to support their expansion and relocation. The Attic creates opportunities for LGBTQ youth to develop into healthy, independent, civic-minded adults within a safe and supportive community and promotes the acceptance of LGBTQ youth in society.

  • Take a look Overbrook! JASTECH aims to convert this building into a community wellness center.

Collaborative volunteers will also work with Jastech Development Services, Inc. to develop a conceptual design for a community wellness center at its existing site of the Overbrook Environmental Education Center. Jastech’s mission is to develop and preserve our natural environment, improve public health, and promote personal enrichment.

The Collaborative will provide New Kensington CDC (NKCDC) with conceptual design for neighborhood gateways, building on recommendations in the North of Lehigh Neighborhood Revitalization Plan. NKCDC's mission is to strengthen the physical, social, and economic fabric of the community by being a catalyst for sustainable development and community building.

Spiral Q Puppet Theater will receive design services to support its short-term and long-term location strategy. Spiral Q is a community-based arts and social justice organization that seeks to mobilize communities, empower people and illuminate the victories, frustrations, and possibilities of living in urban neighborhoods through the construction of full-scale giant puppet parades, toy theater and pageantry.

The Collaborative will be working with The Waldorf School of Philadelphia on an integrated open space plan for their new campus. The school is a vibrant learning community where education, based on a deep understanding of the developing child, integrates the intellectual with the artistic, the practical with the beautiful — fostering the ability to engage fully in the world.
