Winter Placemaking? YES, PLEASE!

Join 8 80 Cities’ Amanda O’Rourke in a discussion of winter placemaking ideas for your community and learn about funding opportunities through AARP Wisconsin on Friday, Oct. 15th at 11am CT.

By embracing Asset-Based Community Development, the Winter Placemaking Guide shows that communities, regardless of resources or size, have the means and ability to activate public spaces in creative ways to make winter a more engaging and warmer experience for all. This guide highlights winter placemaking initiatives in small and rural communities that have embraced the Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper movement, proving that LQC is not limited to summer or larger cities. The Winter Placemaking Guide provides examples from communities across North America that have embraced their assets and have made winter a positive experience for people of all ages, abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
