Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!
