Event description


Join Us at Artisphere

County Board Chair Mary Hynes, the County Board, the County Manager and community leaders want you to represent your organization at the kick-off for PLACE, (Participation, Leadership and Civic Engagement). Join Arlington’s communitywide effort to broaden, deepen and improve the way we engage with one another to make key decisions that shape our County’s future.

  • Learn about "Open Door Mondays" – face-to-face chats with a County Board member.
  • Engage with leaders of other organizations.
  • Help build a "community map" that details the rich connections among community groups and how those groups connect to County government.
  • Offer ideas and insights for how civic engagement can be made more inclusive, efficient and rewarding.
  • Get in on the ground floor of a community effort to revitalize the "Arlington Way."
  • Get a private tour of the fabulous Frida Kahlo exhibit on display at Artisphere.
