{abstract} Matt Tomasulo is a graduate of the Master of Landscape Architecture program at North Carolina State University, with a Master of City and Regional Planning from UNC-Chapel Hill. He is the founder of CityFabric in Raleigh, which has a mission “to engage as many people as possible in conversation about their city.” Tomasulo’s most recent venture, Walk Raleigh, is a bottom-up campaign to engage residents and community members in a movement to recognize the walkability of Raleigh. Since Walk Raleigh has gained national and international exposure for its “spontaneous / tactical urbanism,” Tomasulo has been asked to speak around the city and country on the subject of engaging communities in recognizing the walkability of their own urban environments.

His article, tentatively named Accessing the City will address “how now is such an opportunity for anyone to have a large-scale impact through small-scale interaction. Walk Raleigh will be used as a case study to examine how the contemporary age of communication, information, innovation and connectivity can now enabled anyone to be a game-changer in today’s dynamic civic and social community culture.”
