Graham Projects is a Baltimore-based creative agency making cities more inclusive and livable through public art, civic engagement, design, and communications. Building on his background in public art, urban planning, and advocacy, Public Artist and Creative Director Graham Coreil-Allen creates participatory projects and leads social initiatives in the service of pedestrians and places. As an artist, Coreil-Allen interprets and activates public space through New Public Sites walking tours, critical writing, public installations, creative mapping, and documentary video. As an organizer he leverages multimedia strategies for meaningful impact, including community engagement, graphic design, project management, web development, social media, and public relations.
Coreil-Allen founded Graham Projects in 2005 as a way to investigate and improve cities through public art. Over the past ten years of investigating and strengthening public space, Coreil-Allen has expanded his creative work to include a comprehensive array of built, programmatic, design, and communication strategies. Through Graham Projects, Coreil-Allen has reached countless participants through a robust portfolio of work including radical walking tours led in cities across the country, public art viral-sensation Hopscotch Crosswalks, the arts voting initiative Citizen Artist Baltimore, his video commission for the American Pavilion in the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale, and a special episode of 99% Invisible featuring the New Public Sites naming of invisible public space.
