PARRAMORE TRAFFIC BOX PROJECT

The Parramore Traffic Box Project is one part of a City project in collaboration with H. J. High Construction, UCF-CREATE, Parramore Kidz Zone, and Dr. J.B. Callahan Neighborhood Center. The project consists of six traffic boxes in the Parramore area of Downtown Orlando, which are to be painted under the theme of “I Have a Dream.” This theme was chosen to commemorate 2013 being 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington D. C.

In line with the theme, H. J. High proposes to have children from the Parramore area involved with the process.

Why The Signal Box Project Speaks to Young People

  • It engages a broad age range through multimedia
  • It introduces new technologies/skills to communicate their ideas and perspectives
  • It inspires the youth of the community to shape the artistic aesthetic in which they live by utilizing new skill sets
