Erick Rodriguez | Lunch Lecture | April 25, 2014

erickrodriguez

This Friday’s lunch lecture will welcome Erick Rodriguez. He will discuss his involvement with CITY ART PLAY, a youth learning program in Los Angeles, where they created an approach to community engagement that brought art and design to everyday neighborhood spaces. Their goal was to get youth and their families thinking about learning beyond the classroom and within the community. Through a series of neighborhood art workshops, they helped youth express and share their creative potential.

Erick is also an Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellow. The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization and Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. will co-host Erick, as part of his fellowship, to further the development of the Eco-District framework and enhance coordination and collaboration across Cleveland neighborhoods with a broad group of community stakeholders. The City of Cleveland, BBC, and DSCDO are contributing to an international dialogue about the development and implementation of Eco-Districts, and Erick’s goal is to help craft a comprehensive set of strategies that will serve as a useful tool, for both city leaders and community members, to recognize ways their neighborhoods can come together to appropriate sustainability as an essential part of their community. 

This event is free and open to the public.
