Part II of the conference, Our Public Space focuses on the topic of reclaiming the streets (an exercise)
Site: Lathrop Homes (Chicago Public Housing Development)
A five-hour intensive workshop led by Quilian Riano and John Preus that engages with a specific Chicago site to apply ideas generated out of the presentations made the day prior. Mr. Riano brings his experience with Corona Plaza in Queens, New York, and his work with the Occupy Wall Street to bear on questions about public and private space, and forms of grassroots engagement. This is an excellent opportunity to work directly with a specific community and start a conversation in a real site facing real challenges.
10 am – 12 pm: Workshop led by Quilian Riano
Site and conditions (problems/assets) of site revealed
12- 1pm: Lunch break
1-4 pm Continue workshop on site
This workshop is free and open to the public. We highly recommend that participants attend the first day of lectures (see June 15 event) to be properly prepared for this workshop and discussion.
