Have you ever heard about or attended events such as 3rd on Third, Off the Grid, or Salsa Festival in the Fillmore? Are you curious about how they are planned? Do you have ideas about an event that you would like to host in your neighborhood, but no idea how to get started? Are you clueless when it comes to the permit process or access to funding sources? If yes, then this is the perfect learning opportunity for you. Whether you are an active neighbor in your community, a local business owner, or a community based organization, this workshop will teach you steps for hosting an event at your local plaza.
Please join us for our upcoming workshop “Activating Your Local Plaza” on July 9th from 12pm-1pm, and learn! The workshop will be facilitated by Andrea Baker of Andrea Baker Consulting.
On July 14th, legislation will be passed that will change the way San Francisco programs its plazas.
The SF Plaza Program is a new stewardship program designed to empower local efforts and support San Francisco’s many vibrant communities. San Francisco’s plazas are vital to the livability of the City because they create a sense of place and community for neighbors and visitors to enjoy San Francisco. The Plaza Program will work with plaza Stewards, to establish long-term agreements to activate and maintain plazas that area adopted for the program. The approved steward would then manage these day-to-day programming tasks, if any were part of that agreement. San Francisco Beautiful supported the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development and Supervisor Cohen in making this initiative a reality.
Every other month, San Francisco Beautiful offers content-rich workshops, giving you practical tools to imagine, organize, fund, and complete your community projects. Join us and experts from our community for focused skill-building, networking, and advocacy opportunities.
If you are a community organizer, small business owners, or just interested in learning something new, join us for a workshop.
Register to attend. This workshop is free if you are a Member of San Francisco Beautiful or $15 for non-Members. Lunch is provided. Questions? Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-218-3434. Making change is more fun with friends, be sure to invite your neighbors!
