How to Turn a Place Around workshop
October 28-29, 2004
New York City
Project for Public Spaces (www.pps.org) invites you to join us for the "How to Turn a Place Around" intensive workshop on October 28-29, 2004 in New York City. This workshop is designed for professionals and non-professionals alike who help shape towns and cities -- from highway engineers and real estate developers to community garden advocates and housing specialists. Based on PPS's 29 years of experience in placemaking, and inspired by our popular book, How to Turn a Place Around, the course shows step-by-step our unique approach to revitalization.
During the course, participants work in small teams to observe and analyze places in Greenwich Village and Battery Park City, two very different parts of New York City, to illustrate pertinent issues, give insights and encourage them to see the sites from a user's point of view. New to the course this fall, we will be discussing the places through the lens of "Urban Parks and Civic Life," an issue that many communities are grappling with today.
Registration covers two days of tuition, including a neighborhood tour, in-depth presentations and discussions, on-site evaluation, case studies, a copy of How to Turn a Place Around, and training support materials. Light lunch on Thursday and Friday, and refreshments will also be provided.
To register and for more information, please visit the workshop page at http://www.pps.org/info/ppsnews/httapa_training_course or contact Jande Wintrob at 212-620-5660, firstname.lastname@example.org.
