As is often talked about here at A Sense of Place, Playa Viva is a unique project with many facets. It’s always interesting as to who discovers Playa Viva and chooses to write about the project. Recently an article appeared on the blog of the Creative Synthesis Collaborative. According to its website, the Collaborative is an independent, nonprofit research and education institution dedicated to open source ideals in research and education. The author, Shae Davidson, is a historian with research interests that include public policy and the relationship between culture and civil society.
Shae’s post discusses Playa Viva’s community development efforts and environmental protection. What’s especially interesting is the range and quality of posts that Shae makes. From the ‘public fruit’ movement to the Museum of Light and Daylight to the ‘greening of the GI Bill’, Shae discovers hidden nuggets of creative and inspiring projects.
We’re honored that Shae choose to write about Playa Viva. Thanks.
