For Democracy

Designing For Democracy investigates spatial infractions of democracy within the built environment. We work with an interdisciplinary consortium of diverse stakeholders, connecting a deeper understanding of how inequity, cultural hierarchy, and dehumanization become spatialized and proliferated.

The High Line

The High Line is both a nonprofit organization and a public park on the West Side of Manhattan. Through our work with communities on and off the High Line, we’re devoted to reimagining the role public spaces have in creating connected, healthy neighborhoods and cities.

The High Line Network

The Practice of Democracy exhibition is a joint programming initiative of the High Line Network. This exhibit, originated on the High Line, will travel to other public spaces, allowing diverse communities across our nation to engage in a common conversation.

Presented by the High Line, the High Line Network is a group of infrastructure reuse projects—and the people who help them come to life. The Network’s mission is to support a community of infrastructure reuse projects in creating a world where people have access to vibrant public spaces that center local communities, build civic connections, support environmental resilience, and foster equitable community development.
