  2. 2. Project Information Our VisionWe envision a plan for a Learning Lab at Nashville Public Library thatwill enable us to powerfully engage an increasingly diverse youthpopulation in Nashville in learning with new media and related arts. Bymarshaling together the insights and expertise of youth, communityorganizations, librarians, educational and architectural consultants andtechnology experts, we propose to plan a space of youth activity andlearning that is culturally and socially relevant, that draws on thedistinctive strengths in media and the arts within Nashville, and thatproductively and imaginatively bridges—in its design—physical anddigital spaces.
