Public Spaces as Infrastructure: How to use Federal stimulus dollars to advance equity and transform our cities
Knight Foundation believes that public spaces play an essential role in connecting and attaching community to each other and place. Join us on May 11 for an hour-long lab focused on how communities can leverage federal dollars for public space to advance equity and transform cities. We’ll hear firsthand from policy experts and a real life example of how a city is thinking through this extraordinary moment in time.

Public Spaces Lab Agenda:

1 p.m. ET — Opening Remarks by Kelly Jin, VP/Community and National Initiatives at Knight Foundation

1:05 p.m. ET — "Adaptive Public Space: Places for People in the Pandemic and Beyond" report findings by Julia Day, director at Gehl and Eamon O’Connor, project manager at Gehl
