Connecting people to each other, across differences, through the power of place.
We live in a time when the places and communities we care about are changing rapidly due to climate change, COVID-19, and other natural, social, economic and political forces.
Change can divide communities. Change can also bring communities together.
I’m Corinna Moebius, Ph.D. I help districts, neighborhoods, towns and cities heal divides through the power of place so they can cultivate resilient, collaborative and caring communities.
Imagine bringing back to life a sleepy Main Street or re-inspiring a divided community through arts in public spaces. Imagine a festival or tourism initiative that truly benefits local and mom & pop businesses and the local environment. Imagine community members connecting with neighbors through parks and public spaces and discovering common interests for the first time. Imagine a civic ritual that helps a community heal from the loss of a meaningful place or site. Imagine a renewed sense of civic spirit grounded in connection versus divisiveness.
My specialties are projects related to:
- placemaking and public spaces;
- arts, cultural, eco and heritage districts;
- Main Streets and commercial corridors;
- equitable heritage and regenerative tourism;
- sites of commemoration, public healing and civic rituals.
