Urban Waterways Design Workshop

Friday, March 23, 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Center for Design Innovation,
450 Design Ave., Winston-Salem

Join us at the Center for Design Innovation for a design workshop focused on urban waterways. In this workshop, we will engage in a series of design thinking exercises to reimagine the future of Winston-Salem's creek network. Activities will include the sharing of creek stories, investigative mapping exercises and a hands-on exploration of a nearby hidden creek segment.

The design workshop will include lunch. Space is limited so be sure to RSVP at info@rootsfirst.com.

The workshop will be hosted by the Center for Design Innovation and facilitated by Kristen Haaf and Kate Ancaya, environmental designers with Roots First and creators of the Living Creek Project. Contributors to the workshop will also include Dr. Betsy Towns, UNCSA Professor of Art History and Dr. Michael Wakeford, UNCSA Professor of Urban History.

The Center for Design Innovation is off Rams Drive between Salem Avenue and U.S. 52.

The goal of the Living Creek Project is to inspire ecological literacy about our urban waterways through public conversations, mapping of creek histories and ecologies, and designed interventions at "touchpoints" along our creeks.
