The Integral City: Connecting Creative Cultures in Downtown Greensboro

The Integral City is a grass-roots planning process with local and national partners including the New School Urban Collaborative–New School Milano Finance Lab + Parsons School of Design Strategies, Elsewhere, and various downtown groups. The project will combine financial analysis and art and design tools to identify, strengthen, and connect Greensboro’s cultural assets and naturally-occurring community hubs to foster significant arts-driven economic development that amplifies downtown development.
