James Rojas and his Place It!  workshop.  Urban planner, community activist, and artist, James has developed an innovative public-engagement and community-visioning method that uses art-making as its medium. Through this method he has engaged thousands of people by facilitating over four hundred workshops and building over fifty interactive models around the world.  Plan to join James and LAEV members and residents in this fun activity to think and plan for the further manifestation of the Los Angeles Eco-Village.

Reinventing Money in Relation to Place!   This may be the most important area we work in collectively as we move into the next few years.  Lots of good models are out there.  Can we intermingle and combine them for the “biggest bang for more-than-a-buck” in our own neighborhoods?  Stay tuned.
