Public Welcome

Placemaking & Creative Interventions

Date: Starts May 19, 2021
Cost: $80
Location: Online

This five-week (two hours a week) workshop gives participants a personal laboratory to bring about meaningful change to the spaces in one’s community.

Bringing together elements of placemaking and artistic interventions, participants will walk away with a stronger connection to their immediate community, tools for ideating and organizing, and a better understanding of historical placemaking and public art interventions in the social, cultural, and political context.

Participants will be led through a five-week process that takes them from mapping, observing, ideating, organizing, and implementing placemaking or public space creative intervention in their immediate community.
