Placemaking in Context: Honoring the Culture and History of Communities

April 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

Placemaking in Context event

Placemaking strengthens the connection between people and places. Join us as we examine placemaking through a lens of arts and humanities with transportation, highlighting the culture and histories of local communities and encouraging safe, active transportation through the built environment.

This workshop, Honoring the Culture and History of Communities, is open to municipalities, planners, and anyone else interested in learning about placemaking.  Speakers represent a variety of projects and places with different goals and outcomes – remembering events of the past, preserving community memories, acknowledging changing landscapes, and celebrating communities that occupy spaces in the present.

Attendees will walk away with:

  • Examples of diverse types of placemaking, demonstrated by the variety of speakers, projects, and locations.
  • The integration of arts and humanities into placemaking through public history, landscape architecture, and storytelling.
  • Placemaking and active transportation through presentations about Strollology (the science of walking), public art, and safety.
  • An opportunity to share their own ideas and troubleshoot issues in their communities through a hands-on workshop.
