The Center for Creative Solutions is offering professionals a participatory workshop and process for addressing challenging 21st issues facing towns and cities. After the Flood focuses on a rural southeastern Vermont town that is struggling to rebuild infrastructure and heal from staggering loss from Tropical Storm Irene. Participants will experience a practice that is interdisciplinary, holistic, collaborative, socially engaged and ultimately creative.
Working collaboratively with expert practitioners workshop participants will develop program options for a community space and place that renews the community’s sense of place, and as importantly protects the village from future flooding in ways that aesthetically, ecologically and structurally regenerate and conserve the floodplain. This process authentically engages community stakeholders and involves systems thinking, questioning assumptions, and reframing the issue from interdisciplinary perspectives to open up new thinking. The creative ideas that emerge from the workshop may become a precedent for other flooded communities in the region and beyond.
The six-day immersive studio style workshop incorporates and integrates:
