Streetfilms as Your Resource on Public Space
www.streetfilms.org

Many of the Streetfilm success stories involve a myriad of city agencies, small non-profits and the community, but sometimes involve big business, developers and citywide advocacy groups as well.

What happens at the intersection of these players can be benign or contentious and what public uses are permitted or negotiated is crucial to whether or not a space feels free, open and safe.

The best public spaces are ones that foster a happy environment for people to sit, mingle, date and relax.
