We Are a City of Makers, Artists & Innovators

From January through April 2015, we held more than twenty small and large group discussions related to the George Street Overpass project. These community conversations were organized to inform our community about this exciting public art initiative, and also to ask for their input—a way to inform the artists engaged in the project about the character of Pawtucket, its history, and its future. These are some of their responses, related to Pawtucket as A City of Makers, Artists, and Innovators.

Pawtucket is where innovation in America began

We are known for our expertise, skills

The authentic maker stories of people matter here

Pawtucket has been a maker community from its beginnings to its present day

We are the cradle of the Industrial Revolution

We have a bold, daring spirit

We want to do something different
