Reimagining Main Street | Worcester, MA
The City of Worcester and its Cultural Coalition recognize creative placemaking, cultural economic development and the arts as powerful tools to improve quality of life and as an opportunity to reimagine Main Street. Worcester's downtown artery reconstruction is expected to create an understanding of the city's place in time and sense of place. The history of innovation and major achievements are key components of Reimagining Main Street (RMS).The goal is to increase walkability and vibrancy along the Main Street corridor through wayfinding and public art while taking into consideration connectivity between primary nodes. Among the major cultural destinations along the Main Street artery are three theaters, the Hanover Theatre, Mechanics Hall and The Palladium.
Work in Progress
The Urban Culture Institute is working with project partners to determine placemaking strategy, siting and budgets for individual elements. Stay tuned for additional information and ways to get involved.
