In preparation for the Creative Placemaking Challenge, Urban Idea is hosting a free workshop on placemaking for anyone interested in creating a temporary installation or activity in selected alleys and dray ways of the West Exchange District. Even if you’re not planning to enter the challenge, this workshop will give you some of the tools you need to think about how the power of art can be put to work in making cities more engaging and more fun!
The workshop will consist of a couple of short presentations and some fun activities that will engage participants in the creation of a temporary installation or activity. If you are already working on an idea for the Challenge, bring it down and you’ll have the opportunity to meet with artists and designers who can help you workshop your idea and turn it into something fantastic!
The workshop is designed for all skill levels: from the absolute novice to the seasoned professional!
