Placemaking and Creative Interventions

This workshop gives participants a personal laboratory to bring about meaningful change to the spaces in one’s community.

The course runs Wednesdays, November 3 to December 1, 2021, 7:00 to 9:00pm MST. The course is a five-week process; two hours a week.

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.

What do you get with this course?
  • 10 hours of class instruction with Kevin Jesuino (live via Zoom).
