Introduced by Artswave, with Facilitation by Table Mentors: She will explain the purpose of this exercise and introduce it very briefly. Each table will discuss among itself various pre-conceived notions each sector has about creative placemaking or working with the other side. The purpose of this to realize that there isn’t a common language, and while each sector is different, they often have similar goals. Table mentors will help keep conversations going, and there will be a group share at the end.

2:40 – Real World Exercise Case Study & Group Sharing – Seiler’s Studio & Gallery

Introduced by the Location Hosts, with Facilitation by Table Mentors: Each of the locations will work in advance to create a scenario of a real need in their community. Some form of community engagement/needs assessment/etc. must be in the case study, as they cannot attempt to brainstorm creative placemaking project without feedback from the community. The group at each table must work together to strategize ways to work together and with the community to solve this problem. There will be a group share at the end. The purpose of this is so that attendees can see that it is possible to do this.

3:55 – Recap, Resources, & Evaluation – Seiler’s Studio & Gallery

Nate and Bill: They will close out the day, recapping the event and providing resources to the attendees. This is a final time for anyone to ask any remaining questions to anyone. Note: this probably won’t take 35 minutes, but might. It mostly is this long to allow for a little bit of extra time in case we go over in other places.
