"Image Your Winnipeg" - City of Winnipeg Building Charrette
"...Response to the "Speak Up Winnipeg" campaign has been spectacular. As you can see by posts on this website, Winnipeggers are full of great ideas about how they want their city to grow. We've also got all kinds of reports, surveys, and analyses to fold into the discussion. So what do we do now?
We sort through it all and try on ideas for size. And most important, we do that together.
From June 23 to June 26, at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, we'll put on a public workshop that will include not only chances to talk through some of the big ideas but also opportunities to sketch out how strategies might look if they were applied in specific areas of Winnipeg. A team of designers, planners and other city building types from PlaceMakers, LLC, will be on hand to facilitate discussions and put pencil to paper with test-run scenarios. That way, we'll have something tangible to talk about and to help us choose the right approaches to our long-term urban design strategies."
