RADIATE seeks to multiply the impact of existing placemaking strategies by connecting nearby neighborhood ethnic cultural and commercial districts to Central Corridor Light Rail Transit (LRT) via dynamic intercultural activities and permanent physical project installations along six streets in Saint Paul and Minneapolis. These streets connect to six historic, existing and emerging commercial districts in Saint Paul and Minneapolis: African American Heritage Corridor, Historic Rondo Neighborhood, Little Mekong, American Indian Cultural and Economic Corridor, and the World Cultural Heritage District.

Project status: Submitted proposal to ArtPlace.
