What happens when young people who wouldn’t ordinarily meet sit and have dinner together? An unforgettable experience. Downtown Underground took place in a historic arcade-style building with three interactive elements: technology, poetry and facilitated conversation. This high-tech, high-touch event combined both instant surveys delivered via text message as well as facilitated conversation and spoken-word poetry. Guests connected with each other, surfaced their view of downtown’s strengths, and put their aspirations for our city’s future in the spotlight.
