Designing Futures for Equitable Neighborhoods in Philadelphia
In this workshop, we will collaboratively and collectively imagine multiple possible futures for a selected set of neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Then we will develop various spectra of possibilities and use the strategic design and scenario planning process to map a range of combinations that could plausibly arise in Philadelphia neighborhoods. Top of mind will be conditions that are equitable, adaptive and representative of Philadelphia’s cultural, physical and socio-economic legacy.
Meet our Facilitators:
  • Natalie Nixon is a design strategist and a hybrid thinker. At her consultancy, Figure 8 Thinking, LLC, Natalie helps organizations accelerate innovation and growth by developing meaningful strategy through design thinking and ethnographic research.
