ARE YOU AN ARCHITECT, PLANNER OR LANDSCAPE DESIGN PROFESSIONAL WORKING WITH COMMUNITY GROUPS AS PART OF YOUR JOB?

Are you tired of public processes that get bogged down because they are unwieldy, ineffective, or meaningless? Do you believe that connected, strong communities are essential to creating successful public spaces and public policy?

In our 2-day, hands-on intensive training, we will introduce techniques that empower you to fully engage communities in a productive, creative process, while creating broad ownership over your project. Each day is a mix of lecture, practice, discussion, case studies and hands-on application. Join us to learn our tested and proven Pomegranate Approach.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Over two days, you’ll learn how to:
• Structure and implement effective and decisive community-design processes while maximizing community ownership
• Avoid common pitfalls for community meetings, be an effective facilitator,and ensure that participants walk away feeling included and understood • Strategically handle difficult personalities that threaten the collaborative process
• Organize public design charrettes as effective tools for reaching design solutions quickly and collaboratively
• Use an “Early Success” to keep people inspired and engaged
