FlLL THAT SPACE is the first interactive guide in which residents, artists, community leaders and small business owners can use in order to understand how placemaking can increase the vibrancy of a neighborhood. It is my hope that residents can use the guide as they begin to recognize the creative potential in their neighborhood.
Placemaking is not just a concept for community professionals–it is for all of us who love our neighborhoods and want to keep them vibrant and vital places. We all should recognize the important role we can play as community members. That’s why I love that this interactive placemaking guide is specifically targeted to RESIDENTS! The author of Fill That Space: A Resident’s Guide to Creative Placemaking, (released just this month) spearheaded placemaking in her own Washington, D.C. neighborhood and collected her lessons learned into this handy step-by-step guide that is a fantastic little primer for anyone interested in, as the author puts it, “recognizing the creative potential in your own neighborhood.”
