Athens’s cross-sector team will review our work to animate a pocket park as a catalytic project to develop an arts district. Our real talk will examine the challenges of politics, relationship, and history through a small town lens and draw parallels between neighborhood development even in metropolitan work. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on activity that will contribute to the ongoing work of our team.
In many communities around the United States neighborhoods sprung up around industry.  However, many of those industries have left town leaving those neighborhoods stranded and disinvested.  How do we connect these neighborhoods back in the broader fabric of our communities?  Join City Fields for “Building Bridges” exploring placemaking solutions to integrate the Blythe-Oldfield Neighborhood back into the thriving downtown of Cleveland, TN.
