MPC launched the 2012 Space in Between contest to learn more about how creative people around the Chicago region are taking back long-since forgotten, vacant spaces. The response was overwhelming: Shuttered retail was transformed into art galleries and bookstores. Vacant land became a canvas for community art, tales of motherhood, and rites of passage for young women. Performances were staged in abandoned railyards and long-vacant lots. And scores of community gardens grew not only vegetables, but a sense of community. How can you replicate the Metropolitan Planning Council’s “Placemaking Chicago” contest in your community? Find out from a MPC representative and four recent contest winners who presented attractive temporary reuses of vacant public spaces. Approved for 1.25 PDH by the LA CES.
