Partnerships with community-based organizations provide the foundation for all archi-treasures projects. Rather than rely on the efforts of a single visionary leader, whether it’s an artist or a community activist, archi-treasures builds upon the existing grassroots relationships that a partnering organization has accrued.
We rely upon our project partners to identify and engage key stakeholders. These stakeholders may be teenagers who need a summer job or senior citizens who need an afternoon activity, but they form a core group that expands as the project evolves, creating more social connections and opportunities for interaction.
