Spread from the limited-edition catalog Gray Area: Provocations on the Future of Preservation, produced by Gray Area, part of DesignPhiladelphia, with support from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage in 2011.
At the final community meeting for Gray Area, the public is invited to join in further testing and refining of the in-progress preservation toolkit. The toolkit, a deck of cards designed to promote community dialogue and provocative thinking about old buildings and sites, is intended as a replicable tool to assist communities in brainstorming about historic sites and evaluating actual development proposals.
For this meeting, Gray Area members will test their work by applying the kit to an expanded range of historic sites around Powelton Village and Mantua. Attendees will be asked to provide feedback and ideas about the toolkit itself and about the sites discussed.
This event is free and open to the public; registration is requested.
