DIY Community

Thursday, February 9, 2012 - 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm Eastern.

Who says you need a budget and a staff to turn your community around? The Do-It-Yourself era is upon us, from remodeling bathrooms to canning veggies, and the DIY spirit doesn't have stop at community.

This webinar will focus on how to use techniques of "tactical urbanism" - small, lightweight, and often fun or surprising actions - to accomplish big things in your town. We'll hear about a range of ideas, from chair bombing and Park(ing) Day, to the Project for Public Spaces's "Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper" approach, all of which can help you build community and liven up public spaces without breaking your back or the bank.


CIRD's Resource page contains many documents that can guide your DIY process, such as A DIY Guide to Placemaking in Your Neighborhood.
