Lots of nice coverage
Our crowdfunding campaign not only allowed us to raise $20,000 in private donations; it also helped us garner the attention of a number of people and organizations interested in the topic of creating harmony between people and their “place”.
Some people call this topic “placemaking“. It’s an intersection between urbanism, sociology, environmentalism, sustainability and civic engagement. Professionals who are active in this realm seem genuinely intrigued that we’re making a film that touches upon many of the topics that they wrestle with on a daily basis.
Several authoritative voices within the “placemaking” community interviewed us and covered our film in their respective social media venues. Here’s a sampling of some of the really nice coverage we’ve received in the past month or two:
piece by Chuck Wolfe (MyUrbanist) that appeared in TheAtlantic.com
piece by Kaid Benfield that appeared on his NRDC Switchboard blog (and subsequently picked up by AtlanticCities)
podcast on Place Matters radio show, hosted by Dr. Katherine Loflin
