2016-17 alumni workshop series

The three workshop series began with Collective Cartography that challenged participants to visually construct and identify Evanston's assets and challenges through hands-on map making. Registration will begin in mid-January for the February 23, 2017 workshop, The Creativity Tour. The final workshop in the series, IDEA SLAM (with cocktails) will be held in May 2017.

HIghlights from the Collective Cartography workshop: In late November at the Evanston Public Library, LE Alumni came together to answer the question: What do you need to survive in Evanston? Evanston visual artist, Jason Brown challenged the group to reach consensus about the cartography of our community — natural and human-made barriers, assets, areas of inspiration and areas that drain the community's energy. The map making activity helped unlock a deeper perspective and conversation about Evanston.
