Safe Routes Community Engagement Cards

The Safe Routes Partnership Community Engagement Cards are a collection of arts-based activities that foster community building through creativity. Each activity is designed to spark curiosity, encourage free expression, and engage diverse people in a variety of settings. Our team regularly uses these activities during outreach events, planning meetings, training sessions, and classroom instruction. We made this collection to share some of our favorite activities and to inspire others to try them out.

Every card gives instructions for implementing a creative community engagement activity. They are meant to be easily adapted to fit the needs of your audience. In fact, we recommend putting your own unique twist on each activity to ensure they are accessible and culturally-relevant to your participants. No extensive art skills are required, just an open mind and a willingness to try new things. Click a card to begin exploring!
