We’re excited to announce the launch of StoryBlocks, a storytelling project organized by FSI intern Mike Curran that challenges neighbors to envision change to their blocks. It’s all about finding alternative ways to collect community perspective in order to develop more nuanced understandings of what our communities are, and what we want to become.

Build first, listen later. That’s how city planning usually goes. These stories are meant to reorder that process. Check out the map below and the project’s full website to listen in to what your neighbors are thinking about.

We want to create an interactive space where we can collectively dream. So as you listen, feel free to respond in the comment section at the bottom of each post. Also, like StoryBlocks on Facebook  for our most recent stories.
