This afternoon, Kite's Nest and Promise Neighborhood are hosting a community workshop to share ideas for improving the assets in our city and creating new ones to make Hudson a healthier environment for kids and families.
The workshop is part of a community design process called Raising Places, a project funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation which involves partnership with the Greater Good Studio in Chicago. Kite's Nest and Promise Neighborhood were selected as one of six communities around the country to participate in Raising Places.
The Raising Places Design Team, which will be part of today's idea lab, is made up of Jabin Ahmed, Tom DePietro, Cedric Fulton, Kamal Johnson, Willette Jones, Victor Mendolia, Maija Reed, Brandon Santos, Jennifer Stockmeier, Zebi Williams, and Nick Zachos.
The workshop happens today, November 5, from 1 to 4 p.m., upstairs at Helsinki Hudson, 405 Columbia Street. You can drop in at any time during that three-hour period. All are welcome, including kids and families. Snacks will be provided.
