Day one will be an afternoon consisting of two sessions. The first will focus participants on developing an understanding of placemaking, its relationship with community’s goals and vision, and the Better Block process. 

The second session will be a deeper dive into the process and components of the Better Block program, tying the concepts of placemaking to the upcoming demonstration event. Day two will focus on a morning demonstration event that will be coordinated with a host neighborhood Community Development Corporation in the central region of Ohio. Participants will act as volunteers throughout the event and after the event is over there will be a short debrief of the event; reviewing what went right, wrong, if goals were met, and what further refinements can be made.

Attendees should leave with a basic understanding of place activation as well as the necessary tools to begin work on their own place activation projects.

Training will be conducted by John Yung with Urban Fast Forward.
Cost: $15 for OCDCA Members  /  $30 for Non-OCDCA Members
