Helping Tucson Thrive, One Neighborhood at a Time

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

Observe challenges that the Amphi neighborhood wants to address and goals they want to achieve.

Ideate

Ideate solutions using diverse perspectives and creativity, best practices and vetted research.

Details

Create

Create prototypes which will be developed and implemented in partnership with the community.

Launch

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.

Details

Observe

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.

Ideate

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.
