COLLEGE PARK THINK-A-THON

Do you believe arts and culture can transform a community? This event, in partnership with the City of College Park, brought together the larger College Park community—administrators, faculty, students, residents, government officials, arts organizations, and more—to discuss the role of arts and culture in the redesign of Route One (Baltimore Avenue) . The College Park Think-A-Thon was a variation of the annual Baltimore Think-A-Thon—a “think and do” event where people come together to imagine and plan the ways in which art and cultural institutions can address the city’s challenges.
