With each exhibition, No Longer Empty's Neighborhood Initiatives team researches the immediate neighborhood to promote unique gems and seize opportunities to impact the urban environment. Comprised of architects, planners, interior architects and public policy analysts, we are focused on amplifying the intersection between art and the urban environment.

While we are temporarily in the neighborhood, No Longer Empty's Neighborhood Initiatives seek to work with community stakeholders, in how we can provide small scale interventions and in which existing resources can be leveraged to strengthen a neighborhood's corridor.
For instance, we aim to draw attention to a neighborhood’s history, identity and cultural assets to a greater audience by providing our visitors curated cultural maps and thematic tours to encourage new knowledge and exploration of the surrounding area. As a way to stimulate small-scale tourism, this map offers discounts to participating businesses. Must present map to receive discounts. Map available at the information desk.
We see things holistically and that one business' failure is a loss to the community at large. Likewise, one person’s cultural success is a success for the community. Through creative community strategies and services for various stakeholders, revitalization leads to improved quality of life.
