"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Glass House Collective

Location: Chatanooga, TN

Website: www.glasshousecollective.org

Entrepreneurial and Beta-minded, we gather diverse teams of talent to help revitalize historic Glass Street in East Chattanooga.

We see our work through three lenses, that help us prepare for impact:

Creative Placemaking - projects and programs that help artists and entrepreneurs capture and shape the flavor of the neighborhood,

Feet on the Streets - getting people out of their cars and into transforming experiences – through creative public events, and

New Partnerships - Using creativity as a resource for renewal to bring people together – those who have never been here before, as well as those who have lived and worked here for years.
