Virtual Community Engagement and Programming
This week, the San Diego Business Journal featured our nimble transition from on-site collaborative and strategic activation to virtual programming in the article, "Virtual Village Brings Connection, Community and Exploration". Together with the Port of San Diego and Protea, we are thrilled to be able to continue supporting small businesses as well as our community partners.
In an effort to adapt our community engagement and programming at Seaport Village during this COVID-19 timeframe, we have worked with the Port of San Diego and Protea Properties to 'pivot' and take things virtual. You may have noticed invitations each week to Seaport Streams, which features local musicians Thursdays at 6pm and entertainment for the kids on Fridays at 10:30am.
We are thrilled to share with you an inventive, inspirational series of immersive art experiences created by artist Jessica Ling Findley: Ocean Optimism - Art Interpreting Science. This series is timed to coincide with the prestigious Ocean Sciences Meeting between February 16 - 21. Please come visit throughout the week and join us, with a guest, for an opening reception on Sunday, February 16th at 1:30pm.
Five years ago, SLP Urban Planning lead an effort to 'test ideas' at SILO in Makers Quarter, an initiative that continues to inform our approach to urban planning and placemaking. One idea was co-working. Known as BYOW (Bring Your Own Work), we used SILO as an outdoor co-working environment. The SLP Urban Planning team is thrilled to welcome SPACES MAKERS QUARTER into the neighborhood, a stunning co-work space that embodies the ethos and culture of this neighborhood.
