Openness & Community Participation

Transparency, true community input, authentic local collaboration and partnerships will bring far more visitors into your establishment than working with hot shot architects or importing marble floors and exotic artifacts. If people know where your flooring comes from and even have a connection to its origins, if people recognize the objects you display as being a part of their local heritage, and if they’re invited to take in your space for its beauty and content while participating in its conception and history, the cycle of patronage has the potential to be ceaseless.

Local industries, local talents, and local materials aren’t just proximal blessings; they’re a direct path to every wall mural, every exhibit and every patron you seek.  As the saying goes, use your imagination.  The more in depth your exploration of a place, the more you’ll attract and acclimate the admiration of the people in it.
