We are very excited to invite you to an evening discussion on neighbourhood revitalization and community building next Tuesday.
We are so lucky to have a real guru on this topic, Jim Diers, agree to come speak to us next week. Jim is the author of Neighbor Power and former Director of Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods, where he implemented some very innovative programs and supported thousands of neighbourhood self-help projects.
A while back, DECA’s own Catherine Porter interviewed Jim for her column in the Toronto Star, highlighting Jim’s innovative thinking. You can also get a sneak peak of what Jim is all about by checking out this YouTube video.
Much of what we love about Danforth East – the revitalized East Lynn Park, the Farmer’s Market, the Pop-up shops and more – have been the result of great community engagement. Let’s keep the momentum going! Come out to Monarch Park Collegiate on Tuesday September 17, at 7:30 and be inspired!
Be sure to RSVP here since spots are filling up quickly.
We hope to see you there!
