Equity on Trails: Creating Inclusive Outdoor Spaces

Our friends and partners with the Greensboro Downtown Greenway will share two aspects of their inclusive planning process for the greenway: (1) engaging traditionally marginalized neighborhoods in the planning process; and (2) creating Woven Works, one of the Downtown Greenway’s four cornerstone art installations that includes interactive and accessible elements designed for people with disabilities.  Presenters include:

  • Dabney Sanders – Project Manager for the Greensboro Downtown Greenway.
  • James Griffin – born and raised in Warnersville, founder of the Warnersville Historical and Beautification Society, and Director of Real Estate for NC Central University.
  • Randy Walker – Minneapolis based artist who designed Woven Works Park on the Downtown Greenway.
  • Phelps Sprinkle – VP Development and Donor Services for the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro and a parent of Roxie, a child with special needs.  Phelps has worked and volunteered for disability providers and met lots of parents and kids across those years which has helped inform his perspective for more inclusive opportunities for all.
