The Community’s Table: Shaping the Future of Downtown Austin
The Community’s Table project was conceived, designed and developed by Public City to support the Downtown Austin Alliance’s comprehensive public engagement effort to shape the Downtown Vision. Public City collected ideas from across the city of Austin in the form of ‘vision boards’. These wooden boards were precut 18” x 3” cedar planks that when assembled became the top of a 50’ long community table installed in Republic Square. From highly curated brunches to workshops with partner organizations, expos and dialogs with complimentary topics, the vision boards were completed creating a beautiful collection of words, pictures and symbols that came across in many colors, shapes and creative ways.
