Imagine Community Assignment









Assignment: Interview 3 different people from 3 different demographic backgrounds (ie. A teenager, a parent, an elder) in North Allston, asking them “What do you want from the Allston Library Park?”

You may need to explain the Park development project to them.

Use the Back of this paper for more writing room. 


Objective: The learning objective of this exercise to imagine what’s good for the community by listening to others and by distancing yourself from our own desires.


Follow-up:  When you return to the Portal we will share our findings and record them by plotting the community wants onto a google map of the park.
