“If you can find a better process of community engagement for a city-sponsored housing initiative than the one undertaken by the Denver Housing Authority for Mariposa, I’d like to see it.”

Cultural Audit is used anywhere that technology, the built environment, strategy, and communications intersect with end users.
At the conceptual phase of an idea, I move beyond typical community engagement strategies to ignite genuine collaborative and participatory processes using strategies that place neighborhoods, and user groups, at the center of a project.
During the programming and design phases participatory strategies continue to discover user-group attitudes and positioning in real-time. Insights are uncovered as ideas take form.
Cultural Audit is a valuable tool in the post design phase of a project, supplying first-hand testimony and documentation of the project results in real life. Documentation may be formatted for presentation, funding, archival and other uses.
