PROGRAMMING 

IS OUR NORTH STAR

Plans for the innovation district's initial phase should leverage existing assets and provide a robust roster of programming to start building excitement. To do we like to think about programming as an artificial reef (need to explain more).

creating an artificial reef:

intermediate anchors

  • Support success of primary anchors and create synergies

  • Provide community-focused services

strong academic presence

  • Create downtown presence for area universities

  • Enhance research capacity and industry partnerships

entrepreneurIal anchor

  • Support start-ups and commercialization activity

  • Provide business incubation and coworking space 

primary anchors

  • Align with articulated vision

  • Strong presence in Kansas City

  • Strong potential to attract industry partners

Core space typologies

Facilities and types of space needed to promote research, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.

Another way to think about programming is through a framework. All programming all starts with with education, then funnels through community and social impact, all through the lens of design. Ultimately leading to collisions, outcomes, engagement and so on, to create and improve opportunities in workforce development
