D Convo #91: Tactical Urbanism and Completing the Street

  • Showroom Café + Bar 120 West North Avenue Baltimore, MD, 21201 United States (map)

This month we'll be the guest presenters at the monthly D Center Design Conversation! 

From the organizers:

Time to get our hands dirty! This D Convo is the first in a year long series on design prototyping. Let’s drive change in Baltimore by tackling community action opportunities and barriers.

Structure: We’ll meet once a month to cover a city challenge, introduce a partner working on that challenge, and workshop a big idea and a small intervention that could address that challenge with the partner. Interested parties will meet again to implement the small intervention and publicize the issue and intervention.

Who we need: Designers of all ilk! Marketing experts! videographers and photographers! Artists and craftspeople! Events planners! Community members wanting to get something done!

This month's topic/partners:
Tactical Urbanism and Completing the Street - making great space for walking and biking with Danielle Parnes of Bikemore, and Graham Coreil-Allen, of Graham Projects

Let’s learn about Complete Streets and barriers to Complete Streets in Baltimore! Let’s discover Bikemore’s Big Jump! 

In conjunction with construction on Druid Park Lake Drive, the 28th Street bridge will be getting a biking and walking path. Let’s workshop how we can make it a space people enjoy using! 

Got an idea? Pipe up! Anyone can bring their thing to a Design Conversation. Ideas can be super serious or super silly-us.
