Give your District New Life in Two Days for Less than $2,000

| Hilton Baltimore, Holiday 2 | Posted: Monday, 2:00-3:15 p.m.

Big changes do not always require millions of dollars and years of time. During a 48-hour planning event, volunteers in Oyster Bay, New York, realized they had the power to turn their downtown around through visioning and temporary installations – pop-up stores in vacant buildings, pop-up streetscape improvements, and pop-up playgrounds. Learn how to organize a similar event by using an easy-to-use work plan and see how temporary changes can turn into lasting improvements in your own community. CM | 1.25
