This invitation is to reserve a seat for the Tactical Urbanism Salon that will be held on Saturday, June 22 from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm beginning at the Green Building.
The Tactical Urbanism Salon highlights and draws together individuals, organizations, and local governments seeking new and creative ways to collectively address the challenges facing our cities. The most recent Salon was held on December 8/9, 2012 in Santiago, Chile as part of that country's Architectural Biennale. Past Salons have been held in Queens, NY, Philadelphia, PA, and Memphis, TN.
Mike Lydon of Street Plans Collaborative will begin with an overview of Tactical Urbanism, particularly for those attendees who did not participate in the Sustainable City Series: Tactical Urbanism roundtable discussion forum the previous night. This will be followed by a series of rapid presentations by a handful of civic-minded change-agents in our city who are working to move Louisville forward. There will be a break for a networking lunch (box-lunch orders will be made available). After lunch the attendees will head out to 800 East Market Street where breakout groups will focus on how we can use tactical urbanism to utilize creative short-term actions for long-term change.
The Tactical Urbanism Salon is a free event and open to the public, however space is limited so please reserve your seat today!
If you would also like to volunteer to help transform the 800 block of East Market Street utilizing Tactical Urbanism techniques from 8:00 am - 11:00 am, please follow this link to sign up and learn more! Tickets are not necessary to volunteer, we are simply using the volunteer registration to get an idea of how many people plan to help out at 8:00 am.
