So What is a Roadshow?

The Tucson team hears regular requests to take our mixers around town, North, South, East, West. These gatherings have always been hosted at a single anchor business. But we realized that many of the spaces where we were hosting these gatherings were not just one business, but a hub of unique local businesses. Why not recognize and celebrate all of them?

That is when placemaking came into mind. Why do we love Southern Arizona? What makes this a unique space? Is it walking down the street smelling orange blossoms, or being surrounded by the beautiful mountains? Prickly pears in bloom? Maybe it is a stroll through Sam Hughes and greeting the neighborhood cats. Or the straw hats that only appear in the Southwest.

Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well being
