Create Places People Love
You’re Invited to a Placemaking Workshop – March 13
White River Junction
Do you have a vision for your community? An idea about how you want your community to look, feel and be experienced, but aren’t sure how to get there? Making big changes doesn’t always require thousands of dollars and years of work -- join AARP and our partners to learn about Creative Placemaking, a hands-on approach to improving public spaces and making them more livable.
In this half-day, hands-on training, participants will learn about creating vibrant communities for people of all ages and abilities by taking a closer look at the important role the arts and economic development play. Tips and tools will be described to implement a demonstration project in your community, we will provide ‘recipes’ for practical application for you to use in small town settings. You will hear from three communities, Bennington, St. Johnsbury and Winooski, who have successfully led pop-up demonstration projects this year.
Participants of the workshop will be eligible to apply for one of three $3,000 grants from AARP Vermont to purchase supplies, promote, and implement an actual demonstration in their community! The workshop is free - we ask only that you bring your ideas and an open mind for collaboration.
Registration is required and the full agenda can be accessed by clicking HERE.
Lunch is provided

We look forward to seeing you in WRJ on March 13!
