ABOUT THE PUBLIC SPACE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
During a time marked by interrelated crises of public health and safety, there is a clear need to broaden the public space field to include more perspectives in the development, operations and programming of public space. The Bentway’s Public Space Fellowship aims to address these gaps and ensure that lived experience and varied forms of expertise are prioritized alongside traditional education. Additionally, the Bentway is committed to creating more opportunities within the public space field for BIPOC and other communities that are frequently left out of civic dialogue and city-building. Acknowledging the limitations and shortcomings of traditional processes, The Bentway seeks to support underrepresented and suppressed voices by listening, learning, and creating meaningful partnerships that improve our skills, perspectives and approaches.
