  1. Mobile Engagement Tool: Create a portable tool for engagement.
  2. Key Directions Social Practice Project: Design and implement an inclusive engagement strategy for two large events.
  3. Key Directions Happenings Project: Engage the public at two large events through a performance of scripted or unscripted material.
