Glass House Collective

On The Lot

Project Close

Can a simple hello change the nature of a neighborhood? When it comes with BBQ, live music and a water parkā€”it’s almost certain. To celebrate Memorial Day, Glass House Collective opened its headquarters and a vacant adjacent lot to the community. Residents organized family activities, entertainment, and a few local vendors and informational booths popped up, too. Initially planned to celebrate the launch of a 10-week business planning course held in headquarters, the event turned into something much larger: a chance for neighborhood kids to cut loose, for families to come together and for neighbors to really say hello.

Outcome:
Attracted over 45 neighbors
enrolled 13 attendees in the Launch Business Planning Course
2 residents performed live jazz
