Call for ideas for Placemaking Week


Throughout the week of October 1st, Chattanooga will host hundreds of people from throughout the City, Country, and world to share their experiences, ideas, and challenges in the many practices of placemaking in various communities, disciplines, and histories. More importantly, we will use the opportunity of Chattanooga as host to share with our visitors the work being done by local community leaders, stakeholders, artists, and designers through open workshops throughout the City and Chattanooga Region. Learn more about the conference here.
