REGISTER HERE to attend Creating Park Programs: Innovative Ideas to Engage Community on Wednesday 11/8!

** Please note, the title of this session has been changed from “Planning Park Events” to more accurately reflect the content of this session. It is not yet updated on the registration page. 

Do you want to create events and programs in your local park that engage the community? This workshop will help you re-imagine what is possible in your park. Learn about placemaking, the collaborative process of building community around a place – from Elena Madison, VP at Project for Public Spaces. She’ll explain what placemaking is, share examples of park groups who have developed interesting community based-programs, and lead you through an activity to help you apply these concepts to you park.

Additionally, artist Juanli Carrión will talk about his creation of Outer Seed Shadow #2, a Brooklyn-shaped garden in Fort Greene Park composed of plants chosen by local residents to represent their cultural heritage. Community leader Viva Morgan of Friends of Wingate Park will also share about how a book reading series she created in partnership with a local library has impacted her community. Learn, listen, and hopefully be inspired!

Join us on Wednesday 11/8 from 6:30 – 8:30pm at Southbridge Towers Community Room (next door to 100 Gold Street, New York, NY 10038). We’ll have signs directing you from 100 Gold).
