Soundwalk in Boyle Heights

Our series on MIT Colab Radio

We got invited to contribute to a blog post series on MIT’s Colab Radio, “a city and regional planning publication where people who are doing the daily work of improving communities can share their stories, document their projects, and express their ideas.”

This is a super exciting opportunity for us. None of us are urban planners but we want our research and engagement to be meaningful and useful for individuals whose work shapes our city. We thought there is no better home than Colab Radio to present some of our findings in progress. Our blog posts add to our community engagement efforts of sparking a dialog with urban designers, planners, and organizers about how we can learn from urban sounds.
