DownCity Design is proud to announce the ribbon-cutting of the Donigian Park Gathering Space, a series of creative youth-designed, youth-built seating structures for an Olneyville neighborhood park and playground.
Thirteen high school students from the MET School worked throughout the 2017-18 school year with DownCity Design educators to creatively respond to needs at Olneyville’s Donigian Park, with guidance from the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council and the Providence Parks Department. Their design provides playful seating while visually reflecting the many cultures of Providence residents.
Join DownCity Design to hear from the MET School Studio students themselves about their service-learning experience.
