A Curious Citizen: Jason Roberts
A video well, well worth watching! Part of me thinks Jason Roberts’ enthusiasm and point of view could be the rough mission statement for future The Curious City urban intervention projects. He is doing exciting, inspiring things in Oak Cliff, Dallas, and other American cities victim to sprawl and a lack of public spaces — this is his advice:
- Show up! No one ever shows up and if you keep doing this, you will accomplish whatever you set out to do.
- Be present and there for your community
- Give your project a name! Make fancy logos!
- Set a date and publish it! It makes you commit to a short timeframe.
If more of us took this kind of initiative the American city would be redefined in no time.
