The Power of Placemaking
How can you build community in your own neighbourhood by nurturing shared spaces? What are actionable ideas that you can put in motion in your community? Join artists and community organizers from across Salmon Nation for a participatory workshop about placemaking. You will learn about inspiring community-led projects—from the emergent, collaborative mural in the Feed the People Plaza in Seattle to the Cob on Wood Village in Oakland that provides essential spaces for unhoused neighbours. You’ll learn about the cultural and historical factors to consider when co-creating spaces in your neighbourhood. And, you’ll be invited to meaningfully engage with what community means to you, what possibility it contains, and what you can do to be a better neighbour. Join us for an inspiring delve into practical and replicable ideas you can begin to use immediately.
