Can a block party build a sense of place? The first annual Glass Street LIVE event was designed to bring life to Glass Street via food, fun and community. Glass House Collective partnered with over 30 residents to develop creative activities, live entertainment and food for an unforgettable day. Leading up to the event, Glass House Collective facilitated four community planning meetings and worked with fellow organizers to secure $2000 in sponsorship dollars from private and public sources. The event started as a platform for relationship building in the community which in turn created a vibrant sense of place—attracting over 500 people from the neighborhood and beyond.
Engaged over 30 partners and attracted over 500 individuals to Glass Street.
