WHAT TO DO: Beats and parks
Who says nobody listens to kids? The city of Madison Parks Division invites youth 10-17 to explore parks of the future in a free workshop led by "hip-hop architect" Michael Ford. Hip Hop PARKitecture includes hands-on activities, a park tour, design session, DJ and lunch. RSVP required: eventbrite.com/e/33120547449.
Lunch will be provided, and no prior design skills or knowledge are required. Parents are welcome to attend.
This exciting event is part of the community engagement process for the 2018-2022 update to the City of Madison Parks and Open Space Plan. The goal is to ensure that the voice of Madison's youth is heard during this important plan update.
The Hip Hop PARKitecture Workshop will be filmed in order to produce a video recap of the event. Please note that all attendees will be required to sign the City of Madison's Photograph and Publicity Release Form in order to participate.
