CREATIVE RAHWAY

 

A single question, How can our evolving community ignite creativity and innovation to ensure a thriving Rahway?, led to over sixty topics raised for discussion during the course of this two-day Open Space convening held in January 2013. Sessions ranged from “How can we bridge the gap between the Arts and Athletics? to How can we encourage reinvestment in our downtown from within our community?” In an atmosphere of collaboration and focused energy, spontaneous brainstorming sessions sprang up among participants, relevant conversations took place, and groups formed around specific action items (including “branding” Rahway, and a new task force “Creative Rahway for Education”).
