Make Place Happen!

Serving People & Places

Graham Projects makes cities more inclusive and livable through public art, placemaking, and civic engagement. Building on his background in public art, urban design, and advocacy, Graham Coreil-Allen and his team produce participatory projects and lead social initiatives in the service of pedestrians and places. Some call it creative placemaking, others tactical urbanism. We call it public art for the common good.
