Community Conversation & Scaffolding of the Culture Connects: Santa Fe Initiative
Circles of Conversation
The community conversation and scaffolding of the Culture Connects initiative began in the Spring of 2015 as a harvesting methodology--a collection and gathering of information on what matters most to the community. Several community-wide discussions were held throughout various locations representing the voice of the City: Value of culture to Santa Fe--its depth, breadth and possibility. Many thanks to all who participated in these invaluable conversations.
The Community-Wide Launch was held on Saturday, March 12, 2016. Over 120 community members participated in surveys and activities designed to capture the pulse of the community.
