Knight Cities "Meet the Neighbors" Fall Recap!
As you may know, Scout won the first ever Knight Cities Challenge earlier this year to build a community living room called the "South Philly Stoop" and engage with the neighborhood through storytelling and design. Our Storycorps storytelling project was completed in September and construction on the Stoop will be finished by the end of Summer 2016. In the meantime we want to continue to engage neighbors and solicit input on how the Stoop can be used once complete.
So for a number of days this fall we set up shop with coffee, tea, treats, and an idea board at 9th and Mifflin to ask neighbors "What Would You Like to See at Bok?" We heard lots of amazing ideas and neighbors cast many "votes" (or colored stickers) for different possible uses of the Stoop and Bok more generally. We also had a fun time informing passersby about our vision for the building as a longterm project. Thanks for stopping by!
