Center for Architecture Selected as SRQ Story Project Partner

We are thrilled to announce our SRQ Story Project partnership with Center for Architecture Sarasota. Launched this year as a collaborative program of the SRQ Gives Back and SRQ Engagement Center, the SRQ Story Project uses the art of storytelling to peak the curiosity of SRQ’s influential audiences in the mission of select partners. As a 2014-15 partner, Center for Architecture Sarasota will work closely with the SRQ Media team to share the meaning and mission of the organization through a multi-platform strategy over the coming year.


“Center for Architecture Sarasota is proud to have SRQ Media as a partner and magazine sponsor,” stated Cynthia Peterson, Board Chair for Center for Architecture Sarasota. “SRQ is known for their creative approach to publishing and we feel the partnership is in line with our mission to provide education and foster awareness about the built environment while encouraging innovative design within our own community.”

The newly renovated Center For Architecture Sarasota facility is a space for students, design professionals, community leaders and the public to use for discussions, lectures and displays around our built environment. The Center seeks to advance education and promote the public’s engagement and understanding of architecture and the way it enriches the Sarasota community.

“Great stories are powerful,” says Lisl Liang, SRQ Media CEO/President and Chief Strategist for the SRQ Story Project initiative. “We can’t help sharing them. We’re deconstructing the conventional brand platform to tug at truly magnetic content.  Every conversation is new and so should be our perspective on audience engagement. We can’t wait to work with Center for Architecture Sarasota to transform and amplify design and architecture in our region.”
