AARP PLACEMAKING CONFERENCE

Team Better Block had a great time putting on a pop-up placemaking demonstration and attending the AARP Placemaking Workshop on November 11th in Denver, Colorado. The Team shared their process for pop-up placemaking projects, discussed ideas for how to use pop-up placemaking in each attendee’s own community, and created an indoor “Pop-Up Parklet” to demonstrate various building tools and techniques. Read more about the event here, and keep an eye on the AARP Livable Communities website for the upcoming release of our joint publication, The AARP Pop-Up Placemaking Toolkit.
