Community Lab: How to Build Public Creative Spaces

Mar 6, 2024

11:30am – 1:00pm CT

Join us for a workshop on how to grow diverse, inclusive creative spaces— and candid conversation on dealing with unexpected moments along the way. This session is for educators interested in building or repurposing spaces for creative labs and for artists interested in fostering a community that gives back. We’ll discuss how to articulate needs for public creative spaces in compelling, pitch-ready narratives and develop community-responsive programming. We’ll talk tech logistics to visions— and attendees will leave with a scalable blueprint for building out their own creative communities.
