Placemaking in Context: Honoring the Culture and History of Communities

Flyer for the Placemaking in Context workshop featuring a picture of keynote speaker Nina Cooke John. Through the Vibrant Communities Initiative (formerly Together North Jersey), the NJTPA and the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, are hosting Placemaking in Context: Honoring the Culture and History of Communities.

This workshop will examine placemaking through a lens of arts and humanities with transportation, highlighting the culture and histories of local communities and encouraging safe, active transportation through the built environment.

Speakers represent a variety of projects and places with different goals and outcomes -– remembering events of the past, preserving community memories, acknowledging changing landscapes, and celebrating communities that occupy spaces in the present. Nina Cooke John, architect of the newly installed Harriet Tubman monument in Newark, will serve as the keynote speaker. 

Municipal officials, planners, and anyone else interested in learning about placemaking is encouraged to attend.
