Dream, Play, Build: lecture + workshop
James Rojas and John Kamp have been looking to art, creative expression and storytelling to shake up the classic community meeting.
Their approach, Place It!, draws on three methods: the interactive model-building workshop; the pop-up; and site exploration using our senses. Deceptively playful, this method is remarkably effective at teasing out community dreams and desires from hands-on activities.
"Dream Play Build" offers wisdom distilled from workshops held around the world and a deep dive into the transformational approach and results from the South Colton community in southern California.
Inspirational and fun, "Dream Play Build" celebrates the value of engaging with the dreams we have for our communities.
This event includes a lecture and a workshop as part of the celebration of Rojas and Kamp's new book, Dream, Play, Build (Island Press 2022).
Hosted by Growing Up Boulder (GUB), The Program in Environmental Design (ENVD) and the Center for Community Engaged Design and Research (CEDaR).
