Dreicer's success is the result of a process-based and people-centric approach.
Process. Together we construct our world—environments, communities, and the stories we tell about them. Everyone is involved, every day. Projects that embody this viewpoint invite emotional connection and participation.
People. Audience, visitors, guests, clients, patrons, members, or consumers—whatever you call them, they come first in project conception. This approach leads to modes of engagement that differ from standard curatorial practice.
