From the Ground Up


Event Description:

This hands-on workshop explores ways to develop a people-centered approach to community development.

Community development is supposed to be a process grounded in the collective action and perspectives of community members. The trouble is, community development work often leaves people—the residents and other stakeholders who make a place “home”—out. Rather, institutional perspectives and goals are put first.

How then do we work to help communities in a way that puts people first?  

This is a workshop for concerned neighbors, neighborhood association folks, congregations, community development professionals—anyone!— who wishes to gain new skills and ideas around grassroots people-centered community development. Participants will learn how to put these skills to direct use as well as learn how to build a cohort of community change-makers to continue working together long past the Spirit & Place Festival. 

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs requested.

Presented by Kheprw Institute, Southeast Working Class Task Force, KI NuMedia, Scarabys Consulting, LLC, and Spirit & Place.
