#10. IN-FIELD WALKING WORKSHOP — Placemaking: Making It Happen NM-Style (Placemaking Track)

November 5, 2015 @ 1:31 pm – 5:15 pm America/Denver Timezone


PPS’s Placemaking: Making it Happen is an educational course that builds on participants’ knowledge of Placemaking concepts and provides the tools to implement and manage Placemaking projects.   This session will be exciting and creative because it will adapt PPS’s Placemaking course to include a New Mexico-version of their Place Game evaluation tool that will be used on the Santa Fe plaza and surrounding streets.  The participants will be organized into small teams and led around the plaza by team leaders from various disciplines (Arts, Transportation, Historic Preservation, and  MainStreet) to conduct the Place Game evaluation tool.  There will be a debrief session afterwards with each team reporting back their observations and evaluations of the plaza as a public place.  The participants will learn how to evaluate public spaces and take these lessons and techniques back to their own community to begin to transform their public places into dynamic and revitalized centers.
