The volunteer team for the Tilt-Down Fence project is comprised of designers, students, and educators brought together by BR+A+CE with the common goal of  turning an underused green space into an active public art space for residents that serves the community at large, the Viet-AID preschoolers, parents and the elderly population. BR+A+CE is currently consulting with the city to bring resources and services to advance and support the city’s immigrant residents and your support will create new conversations about immigration communities, cultural exchange, and their contributions.

BR+A+CE is grateful to all the individuals who have donated their time and expertise to help us realize the Tilt-Down Fence. As an entirely volunteer-run organization, BR+A+CE depends on the contributions of design and engineering professionals, students, and community-minded individuals who donate their time to help realize our work. Below you will find a list of all the people who volunteered their time to help us realize the Tilt-Down Fence
