The Knight Creative Communities Institute holds a proven track record for moving the needle. For the past 10 years, KCCI has equipped teams of “Community Catalysts” to bolster the Big Bend’s “sense of place.”
Tallahassee's Knight Creative Communities Institute is marking its tenth anniversary. The upcoming year's initiative will be tackling an ambitious project to connect university students with the community.
After 10 years of creating places and initiatives that attract young professionals to Tallahassee, the Knight Creative Communities Institute is aiming to connect town and gown — the community and its universities.
Congratulations to two KCCI Waterworks team Community Catalysts, Althemese Barnes and Alissa Slade Lotane, for being appointed to the Community Historical User Group. The group will help cast vision for how to honor local history.
Before there was the artsy and edgy “Gaines Street,” there was simply Gaines Street — a gritty, workaday industrial corridor near Tallahassee’s downtown. Before there was “Midtown,” there was simply a midtown area in the triangle.
As my year as a Knight Creative Communities Institute (KCCI) community catalyst draws to a close, I’ve been thinking about what the experience has meant to me and the promise it holds for the 2017 class.
