June 30 / Open Call to Study Projects Designed in Community

PennPraxis by Weitzman School of Design, the University of Pennsylvania invites you to apply for an award to participate in Case Studies in Design, a collective writing and thinking project that will create opportunities for community and design leaders to think together about ways to catalyze transformational design, planning, and place-keeping from the ground up.

The goals are to learn from ambitious projects designed in community, to share experience through dialogue and a public library of case studies, and to train ourselves for new ways of working with communities. Case study projects will range from outstanding examples of community-engaged practice to more radical roles and results of interdisciplinary work within movements.

PennPraxis are seeking applications from people who would like to research and author a case study, which we will publish and disseminate in a variety of ways. PennPraxis will support 5 case study writers in 2024 with a fee and expense allowance of $50,000 per author.

PennPraxis especially invites people who may be interested in culture-shifting dialogue between public agencies, funders, community leaders, schools, and the architecture, landscape, planning, heritage and art fields. 

The application deadline is June 30th, 2024 at 12:00 pm EDT.
