streets.mn members are invited to join the Strong Towns National Gathering. It’ll be local. It’ll be educational. It’ll be September 12 – 14, 2014.
This is not a conference, but a gathering.
Strong Towns is hosting it’s first National Gathering in two weeks in Minneapolis, but it’s aim is entirely different than that of a “conference“. The idea is to participants to actually help shape the future of the organization and set a strategic agenda.
Don’t expect to be sitting in a room watching PowerPoint presentations. You are the program. The neighborhood is the classroom.
The Gathering will be neighborhood centered [at 38th Street and Nicollet Avenue] in Kingfield. It’ll be utilizing restaurants and community meeting spaces within walking distance of that intersection, with the opportunity to venture out in the evenings to Uptown, Lyn-Lake or Eat Street.
WHEN: September 12, 2014 at 12pm – September 14, 2014
WHERE: Sabathani Community Center [310 E. 38th St. MPLS]
