Tues, February 13 at 9:30am—12:30pm

Community Development for Artists, Designers, and Makers

Instructor: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP

To influence the people who affect quality of life in communities, it helps to understand them and speak their language. This workshop will help you make more persuasive arguments to elected officials, leaders of community organizations, and others who can make things go – or stop – in a community. Specifically, you can explore:

*How those involved in community development think about issues affecting quality of life in communities, and how they measure success

*The levers of influence in communities – from individuals to institutions. In other words – how things change – or don’t – in communities

*The sources of funding for community-oriented projects

*How nearby communities have engaged arts to address community issues.


Tues, February 13 at 1:30pm—4:30pm

Economic development for artists, designers and makers

Instructor: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP

We know that the value of art is priceless. Unfortunately, a lot of businesspeople, elected officials, investors and their advisors don’t see it that way. If you want to influence these people, it helps to talk about the arts in ways they can understand. This workshop will help you make more persuasive arguments. Specifically, you can explore:

*How those involved in local economic development think about issues affecting standards of living in communities, and how they measure success

*The levers of influence in communities – from individuals to institutions. In other words – how things change – or don’t – in communities

*The sources of funding for local economic development projects

*How nearby communities have engaged arts to address local economic development issues.

Building Teams for Creative Placemaking

Instructor: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP

As Geraldine R. Dodge President Chris Daggett has said, “The hardest part of collaboration is collaborating.” This workshop focuses on building sustainable and high-performing teams for creative placemaking. Participants will learn how teams go from starting off as a group of people with different agendas to a team with a shared mission and views on how to move forward. Participants will also learn the methods of Community Coaching, a team-building and planning tool that has been used in 15 communities in New Jersey and Louisiana.


Tues, March 6 at 1:30pm—4:30pm

Creative Community Engagement

Instructor: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP

Tired of traditional community meetings? A lot of people in the community are too. This workshop explores artistic and fun ways to engage community members. Participants will learn about easy ways to create community models, photo-voice, visual notetaking, role-playing and other methods of engaging audiences. Participants will learn how to use these methods to get critical knowledge about communities, build consensus, or generate enthusiasm.

Creating Community Murals

Instructors: Kadie Dempsey and Dan Fenelon

(note: no arts training is required) Murals can be important tools for bringing people together and building civic pride. Or they could just be paintings that come people like and others hate. The difference is how they’re done.

You will learn how to plan and manage a marling project that engages community members and works to support planning and creative placemaking efforts. You will get hands-on training by working on an actual mural in class.


Tues, April 17 at 1:30pm—4:00pm

Creating Public Art

Instructors: Kadie Dempsey and Dan Fenelon

A piece of public art can be a creative beacon that connects an entire community. Or it could be just another object on the sidewalk that some people, some people hate, and too many ignore. The difference often is about how it's designed, who's involved, and who's making what decisions.

This workshop will help you design and develop true community-guided public art initiatives. You will learn all steps of the process, from idea creation through site selection to installation.

Tues, June 12 at 9:30am—12:30pm

Crowdmapping

Instructor: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP

Taking stock of your existing assets and opportunities can help you do more cost-effective creative placemaking. You will learn how to read a community for ‘hidden’ creative assets and opportunity sites. You will also learn how to engage stakeholders in crowd mapping and how to build better creative placemaking strategies from your maps.


Tues, June 12 at 1:30pm—4:00pm

Creative Assets Inventories

Instructor: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP

What you should do as a creative placemaker depends a lot on what is available in your community. Creative assets inventories help you get a better sense of resources and opportunities to achieve lasting benefits. Specifically, you will learn:

*How to assess creative and cultural organizations in a community

*To develop more effective surveys for creative placemaking

*Tools for measuring local and regional creative economies

*Effective ways to share information to convince and persuade key audiences
