Graham Coreil-Allen facilitating Citizen Artist Baltimore listening session

 

Graham Projects works with diverse communities on creating change at the block, neighborhood, and city level through organizing, advocacy and direct action. We recognize that the best neighborhoods experts are the people who create places through their everyday social bonds and personal leadership. Graham Projects listens to and works with grassroots organizers to address the strengths and needs of communities. Be it through a walking tour, visioning session, neighborhood cleanup, or petition drive, we feed partnership power into collective strength while redefining and celebrating people and places. 

Civic Engagement strategies include:

  • Participatory walking tours that identify, promote, and activate public space
  • Public event organizing: planning, promotion, logistics, and management
  • Facilitating community meetings, workshops, and visioning sessions
  • Face-to-face and online calls-to-action and petition drives
