Opening Shared Use

open.su
This section focuses on the actual LAUNCH of a shared use project and provides resources on fostering partnerships and engaging the community to boost attendance.

1. Kick Start with a Launch Event


A formalized, and heavily promoted launch event can be a great way to kick-off your shared use project. Draw community members in with a creative event and use the opportunity to announce what you’re doing. 

    2. Continued Communication


    After a large launch event it's important to continue awareness of your shared use space. A well thought out communication plan can increase community engagement.

    3. Fail Forward


    Every project is bound to have some less than successful moments. Failing forward is a term for taking undesirable results, learning from them, and pushing on. You might learn from your own experiences or from others’ too.
