Looking for innovative ways to bring creativity into your community? Lori McKinney, a community leader based in Princeton whose energy and artistry has been a central driver of creative placemaking efforts there, and who is also the co-founder of The Riff Raff Collective and project manager of Create Your State, has created two ways in which to pass her learnings along to others: an online toolkit and video tutorials.
The Changemaker’s Toolkit shares detailed instructions on how to spark changes in your community from the ground up. You can learn how to assemble a team, address naysayers, create public works of art, and more.
The Create Your State Video Tutorials are a series of ten engaging sessions open to all. Here you can discover ways to recognize the power of possibility, identify assets, confront negativity, amongst others.
Do you want to make creative placemaking a part of your community?
