Come learn with others in your communities and neighborhoods about successful strategies for:

  • Transforming public spaces from car-centric to people-centric
  •  Accelerating culture change within public agencies
  •  Learning and practicing effective tools for continuing change.

Presented by Mark Lakeman and core members from City Repair Project, this workshop will provide a dazzling spectrum of real world tools for building participatory culture and manifesting lasting change through physical interventions.  This workshop will also present powerful ideas for building resiliency while also addressing the negative effects of gentrification. Bring your own ideas, because the summation of the workshop will be strategies and timelines for doing projects in your Los Angeles neighborhoods.
