If you could get the people of Boston to stop on The Greenway for a moment and DRAW, how would you do it? The Greenway invites you to submit an idea, challenge, or prompt for a new program called DRAW that will inspire Greenway visitors to sit down together and draw along our 1.5 mile park system!
To participate, please send the following to Kait Levesque (firstname.lastname@example.org):
- A few sentences suggesting simple steps Greenway visitors can take to make a drawing, ideally inspired by some aspect of your own practice, The Greenway, or Boston;
- One or two images (JPG, etc, suitable for printing 5” x 5”)
- A very short sentence describing who you are and (optional) how the activity might relate to you/your work.
We’ll put these ideas on large rolodex-style cards and attach them to our drawing boards, available wherever the Uni pops up.
Out on the street, we’ll provide people with pencils, charcoal, paper, and other drawing tools. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to facilitate, but your ideas will provide the inspiration to get people started.
The Uni DRAW cart is a new part of The Greenway’s Play programming. Designed and built by The Uni Project, NYC, the cart will pop up in our many parks serving neighbors, commuters, and especially, our youth visitors from areas around Boston. We are dedicated to engaging our visitors in the beauty and fun of The Greenway and Boston. Your contribution will mean a great deal to the people we meet. Thanks for helping us create an oasis for drawing on The Greenway.
We are unable to respond to all entries. You will receive a reply only if your prompt is chosen.

I thought this was an interesting read, especially looking at it from a client point of view.
If anyone has any input about the layout or images I chose it would be welcome.
