Places such as libraries and community centers were known as public places many people could convene in and discuss a plethora of important matters. Whether it was as a temporary getaway from the hectic routine people were accustomed to or as a place to safely gather and have community with others, these locations have been depended on to bring many together. However, the idea of a space that can be occupied by the public is being redefined and this space focuses on issues important to the community and the world at large. The groundbreaking redesign alone can be the next touchstone to inspire a new wave of public spaces in the foreseeable future.
As one of those places, Grace Farms brings the wonders of nature and architecture together to create a public space that offers art, community, faith and more for the public to experience.
Grace Farms’ 80 acres of vastness is open to the public for six days of the week and people are encouraged to join in discussions, interact with nature, take in fresh art and absorb an interest for positive change from a diverse group of individuals. In addition to this, Grace Farms holds workshops, roundtables and training sessions, always open to top-quality work.
Under the supervision and overall vision of Grace Farms Chair and President, Sharon Prince, the company worked with public and private groups to push forward in their pursuit for global change.
The space of Grace Farms is one that connects people of different backgrounds, generations and more in a way that these days may not even see in an ever-shifting landscape. The hope is that it will inspire many international places to make their own spin on the community center.
