      Dear Friends of PPS,

      Project for Public Spaces is excited to announce that registration is open
      for its three training seminars this fall- Streets as Places, How to Turn a
      Place Around, and How to Create Successful Markets. Below you will find
      descriptions of these courses and links to further information. Please
      register online as soon as possible to obtain the early registration rate!

      Streets as Places is a two-day transportation/placemaking training course on
      September 15th & 16th. The goal of the course is to introduce participants
      to new ways of thinking about streets as public spaces and how placemaking
      can be used to build great streets and great communities. It is intended for
      anyone who is interested in creating a great street, including
      transportation professionals who want to learn more about how streets can
      help to build communities, civic and elected officials who realize that
      greater economic impact can result from changing the way that roads are
      designed, and citizen activists who understand that the time to change is
      now. Breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail reception are included in the training

      How to Turn a Place Around is a two-day placemaking training course on
      September 25th & 26th. We will spend two days exploring the principles of
      making places through the close examination of two contrasting
      neighborhoods, walking tours, presentations, case studies, and a Place Game.
      Registration 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.

      How to Create Successful Markets is a two-day training course on public and
      farmers markets on October 17th & 18th. Participants of this course will
      learn about the 4 crucial elements to successful markets: the right mix of
      vendors and products; a strong sense of place; solid economic and
      operational underpinnings; and a firm commitment to the surrounding
      community. Through presentations, working groups, and on-site tours of New
      York City's open-air farmers markets, indoor public markets, flea markets
      and urban farms, the workshop will examine the following topics: Benefits of
      markets; Ingredients of successful markets; Introduction to Placemaking;
      Market planning process; Community engagement; Partnership building;
      Sustainable market operations; and Market management.

      Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
