Following the success of RESET Saturday on May 30, the Nashville Public Education Foundation (NPEF) has created an interactive traveling display for Nashvillians to continue providing input, featuring elements from the event’s stations. It will be in a different location every week. All information gathered will be shared communitywide, as well as with the new mayor and director of schools.
This effort comes with the continuation of NPEF’s Project RESET work to bring Nashvillians together behind a cradle-to-career effort to support and improve our public schools.
“RESET Saturday was the beginning of a much larger conversation,” said Shannon Hunt, NPEF president and CEO. “We want to keep the collaborative effort going and continue to get people talking about what we can and must do as a community to move with greater speed and intentionality. By taking Project RESET on the road, we give residents in neighborhoods across Nashville a chance to weigh in on various ideas.”
In partnership with the Nashville Public Library and other community partners, the interactive exhibit will travel to neighborhoods across the city. The first stop will be at Casa Azafrán on Saturday, June 27, at 10 a.m. and last through Sunday, July 5. The full schedule of stops includes:
