MotiveSpace Tagline, just text

MotiveSpace was a nonprofit property developer that formed in 2008 after a series of salons, workshops and a 2-day symposium sponsored by the office of former Mayor Tom Potter. Engaging over 200 Portland neighbors, developers, planners and community leaders, the Symposium was held inside City Hall to encourage feedback from both neighbors and City officials. The Symposium culminated in a weeks-long Exhibition in City Hall, summarizing the conversations and ideas generated, and inviting further comment. As the conversations grew and enthusiasm mounted MotiveSpace incorporated to forge new tools for participatory placemaking and to incentivize community-benefit projects.
