Here’s a little bit about the project, a collaboration with Works Progress, Sarah Peters, Good Work Group, Sam Gould from Red76, Molly Balcom Raleigh, and a growing group of artists, designers & writers.
A Public Thing is a group of artists, writers, thinkers and doers who are dedicated to preserving and building the public realm—spaces that are open and accessible for people to come together and engage in conversations pertinent to today. Through ongoing gatherings and publications, A Public Thing opens up space for conversations—face-to-face, in print, and online—that have the potential to change the way we think, work, and live.
Recently, about 50 folks gathered at Peavey Plaza for A Public Thing’s “Financial Engagement” event. Check out the print documentation of the conversations that ranged in topic from debt, economic inequality, poverty, financial literacy, alternative economies, economic growth, sustainable communities, and more.
