Abstract or Description
Charm Bracelet Project: Culture and Community on Pittsburgh’s North Side tells the story of cultural, educational and recreational organizations transforming traditional understandings of how institutions make community impact. This publication offers a portfolio of projects as well as descriptions and insights that showcase how a network of organizations worked collectively to foster vibrancy at the street level and constructively impacted Pittsburgh’s North Side, a corner of the city faced with substantial challenges. The ensuing partnerships and collaborations launched an intentional practice of sharing agendas and joining agendas by and between the ‘charms’ of the North Side, creating a ‘bracelet’ on the North Side to strengthen family experiences, guide future development and invigorate the everyday spaces of a city.
