Pop-up Resource Village a Finalist for Creative Placemaking Fund

Pop-up Resource Village is mobile and temporary structures that can lessen the economic and social isolation many communities face. It’s “pop-up” civic resources–education, services, culture, and entrepreneurship opportunities–that are necessary to enable under-resourced communities to thrive. And it’s one of 70 finalists for the competitive 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund of ArtPlace America.

The project is the result of collaboration between Designing Justice and Designing Spaces, cofounded by Deanna Van Buren (LF ’13) to support re-entry and diversion programs to end the mass incarceration crisis, partnering with the San Francisco sheriff’s department Five Keys Schools and Programs.
