We are a grassroots group dedicated to helping community members make small-scale projects and events happen together. Our mission revolves around three key goals: Building lasting, exciting civic improvements, building civic engagement skills, and building diverse community.
Community members share their project ideas with us online, at festivals, and wherever we can meet them. The ideas can be anything, so long as they are open to the public, are inclusive, take place in or improve a public space, could reasonably be completed for $1,000 or less, and are sustainable.
Every so often, we hold a Community Ideas Summit. Volunteers who pledge to join a Project Team get to vote on recently submitted ideas, and the winners are kicked off at the summit! DIY Lowell facilitators help the Project Teams make the winning ideas a reality with technical assistance and funding.Create your own user feedback survey
