Urbanist and activist Jane Jacobs famously said: “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”

While not an urban planner by training, Jacobs is considered a trailblazer in the field and was a firm believer in the importance of local residents having input on how their neighborhoods develop. Decades later, Jacobs' insights are still relevant. Places are not just created by architects, engineers, and urban planners. We've come to understand that cities and their residents engage in an active, symbiotic relationship — we create places and, in turn, those places create and sustain us, both in visible and invisible ways. Today, this p...rocess is often referred to as placemaking.

Join us as we launch our 2018 For the Love of Cleveland series on placemaking with a keynote address from Erin Barnes, Co-Founder and Executive Director of ioby, on the power of resident activism in creating and sustaining place.

The Cleveland Foundation is presenting this forum free to the community as a part of Common Ground, a regional day of community conversation. This year’s event will be held Sunday, June 24, featuring conversations across a spectrum of community topics, all framed around the question, “Why does place matter?”
