The Thriving Cities Project was born at the University of Virginia. It makes its first public appearance in Milwaukee Wednesday as a focus group explores “what it means and what it takes to thrive.”
Portland, Oregon; Richmond Virginia; and Orlando, Florida are also part of the project, created by the University of Virginia’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture.
Over a five year process, Thriving Cities will fold in a total of ten cities. Their accumulated feedback will help design what organizers say will be a “new method of community assessment.”
