What happens when one of the most notorious neighborhoods ever is suddenly fair game all at once? Franklinton suffered a cataclysmic flood in 1913 leading to decades of economic stagnation earning the nickname of “The Bottoms” and a reputation as the place to avoid. The 2003 completion of the flood-wall was supposed to change all of that over night. It didn’t. But eventually, art did.
Attendees of this workshop will:
- Be bold! Describe how big audacious ideas, if they come from a legitimate place, can change your built environment.
- Explain why arts and cultural institutions are the best activators of sidewalk life
