In its role as a partner in the revamping of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the Queens Museum is modeling best practices for cultural institutions seeking to serve their immediate communities at a grassroots level. In the winter of 2014, the museum launched its Community Design School, which provided training and workshops to diverse community stakeholders. As this article recounts, the project’s objective was for participants to “leave with knowledge and confidence to present ideas to city agencies, participate in further planning and design of the park, and motivate neighbors to do so.”
