The following show outcomes of this effort to connect with a community project and the outcomes of that relationship. I created a toolkit to give to my partners and they fully embraced it! This was only after spending hours visiting Aquarena Springs, talking to a lot of individuals, and trying to find the right way to link with people.
"The Orange Box" that I filled with ideas, snacks, and invitations for staff to contribute their thoughts. Feedback included marking up a map with notes and ideas, an old boat ticket with added commentary, and other notes. This approach yielded numerous insights, many of them heartfelt, from passionate and experienced staff members.
This “Idea Spring” documents all of my observations and proposed ideas after my research. I worked hard to balance existing momentum and achievements with new ideas.
