I want to go for a walk with you, and you, and you, and you. Starting at our doorsteps, we will embark on an exploration of the internal and external landscapes of our own neighborhoods. We’re going to practice our evacuation routes for when cabin fever sets in, or we’re lost in a news loop, or we’re too overwhelmed to respond to everything that’s going on. Can we find safe zones where our bodies meet public space? Can we use technology to create a collective impression of the space and time we’re in? Please RSVP at for details. (Co-hosted by City Repair and the virtual Village Building Convergence.)
