      Project for Public Spaces invites you to two separate workshops, "How to Turn a Place Around" and "How to Create Successful Public Markets" on May 19-20, 2005 in New York City.

      "HOW TO TURN A PLACE AROUND" (http://en.groundspring.org/EmailNow/pub.php?module=URLTracker&cmd=track&j=22444892&u=204499) is a two-day workshop designed for professionals and non-professionals who help shape towns and cities -- from highway engineers and real estate developers to community garden advocates and housing specialists. Based on PPS's 30 years of experience in placemaking, and inspired by our popular book, "How to Turn a Place Around," the course shows step-by-step our unique approach to revitalization.

      During the course, participants work in small teams to observe and analyze places in Greenwich Village and Battery Park City*, two contrasting areas of New York City. The sites will be used to illustrate complexities in making places, encourage a user's point of view, and provide insight into how public spaces function. (*Site subject to change.)

      The registration fee covers two days of tuition, including a neighborhood tour, in-depth presentations and discussions, on-site evaluation, case studies, a copy of How to Turn a Place Around, and training support materials. Light lunch and refreshments will be provided on both Thursday and Friday. There is a reception Thursday evening (included) and an optional dinner Friday night (please note the dinner is a change from previous workshops and is not included in the fee.)

      To register and for more information, please visit the workshop webpage, http://en.groundspring.org/EmailNow/pub.php?module=URLTracker&cmd=track&j=22444892&u=204500, or contact Kathleen Zeigenfuss at 212-620-5660, kzeigenfuss@....

      * Meet other folks from around the country working on a variety of public market projects.

      The registration fee covers two days of tuition, including tours, in-depth presentations and discussions, on-site evaluation, case studies, and training support materials.

        I can't resist.....
        I went to the PPS forum yest at RWC...it was sensational, Fred Kent,
        president of PPS was the speaker, very very inspirational.
        I'd be glad to send my notes upon request.
        but in 3 lines:
        "Parks should be about uses, not �open space�.
        Public spaces need not be parks.
        Imagine that streets become public spaces again"

        Hope someone can attend the workshops!

        Best,

        oh, I gotta kick out of his "favorite place in NYC", where he lives -
        the subway! the most international place in the city, he called it.
        but do check out Bryant Park as well....and Union Sq., as we plugged both of
        them
        Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen, is his favorite place on the planet, it
        appeared.
