The Musicant Group hosted an interactive and creative placemaking experience at the Great River Gathering's 2016 closing event presented by the Saint Paul Riverfront Corporation.
The Everyday Equity in Design installation was presented by The Musicant Group with Friendly Streets Initiative and Metro Transit. The installation represented our physical environment and how it has a tremendous effect on how we feel and connect (or don't) with each other and our surroundings. Attendees experienced two of our society's most ubiquitous spaces - the front lawn and the bus stop - reimagined as places that are full of community, connection, and life.
The Great River Gathering is an annual celebration that brings together an influential and diverse group of civic leaders and community members, all of whom share a commitment to creating a world-class greater MSP region.

The Musicant Group was honored to host three sessions on Transformative Placemaking at The Bush Foundation's 2016 BushConnect Conference held at the Guthrie Theater.
At these sessions, the participants got a practical introduction to Transformative Placemaking, a feeling-based, incremental process to creating places that mirror how organic life grows and continually adapts. They then learned how to apply this approach to any environment – from the mundane to the monumental. Finally, participants unleashed into the confines of bushCON to put theory into practice and create placemaking installations based on what they’ve learned.
bushCONNECT is a leadership networking event that builds stronger and more meaningful connections among leaders in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geographic area.
#bushCON is powered by the The Bush Foundation in partnership with more than 40 organizations from the region. The day included inspiring talks, engaging small-group sessions, conversations with community leaders, and interactive networking experiences, all designed to inspire, equip and connect leaders for success.
