Movement Day Tucson is a convening of leaders and residents who create prototypes to help Tucson communities thrive. 4Tucson hosts this annual event, where collaboration takes place in three stages:
Observe, Ideate, Create
Following Movement Day Tucson, Community Development Groups and 4Tucson Taskforces develop the prototypes into actionable projects and launch them in collaboration with local communities. Currently, 4Tucson is working with the Amphi neighborhood.
Observe challenges that the Amphi neighborhood wants to address and goals they want to achieve.
Ideate solutions using diverse perspectives and creativity, best practices and vetted research.
Create prototypes which will be developed and implemented in partnership with the community.
Prototypes are refined based on data and community feedback. They are then developed into one or more actionable projects which are launched in partnership with Amphi.
4Tucson conducts research and produces an in-depth report complete with statistical information on a specific topic. Since 2020, we have produced three research reports: Poverty Reduction, Economic Opportunity & Development, and Housing.
Additionally, we ask questions of residents to learn from their experiences. These perspectives give us a well-rounded and in-depth understanding of the challenges and goals Tucson communities want to address.
4Tucson convenes influential city leaders from every sector and residents from our communities because we need experienced insights speaking into solutions from all perspectives. This collaboration makes creatives solutions much more wholistic.
At Movement Day Tucson, we interactively brainstorm with a diverse group who bring lots of experience and energy to the creative process. These prototypes are designed to address systemic problems that hinder community health, growth and prosperity.
During months following Movement Day Tucson, a Community Development Group is formed to identify the best concept to implement that year, so that the community will thrive and achieve the goals they have identified.
Be part of a 4Tucson team dedicated to refining the prototypes designed at Movement Day Tucson and launching them in partnership with the Amphi community.
