The Wellbeing Project

Santa Monica was one of just five cities selected by Bloomberg Philanthropies to make innovation happen. It was awarded $1 million to launch The Wellbeing Project.

The concept was straightforward. First, define what a city needed to thrive. Second, get the data that would show how the city measured up. Third, get the community and the city government together to take action on the what needed to be improved.

I was brought in by ArtCenter and Design Matters to work with students and the city of Santa Monica on how to create a community in the City of Santa Monica around the data of the wellbeing project.
