Social + Cultural Vibrancy Community Workshop Summary

April 19th, 2017 at the Smokestack
6:00pm – 8:00pm

Imagine Dubuque’s Social + Cultural Vibrancy Workshop, which took place on April 19th, 2017 from 6-8pm, was an evening to remember. Graciously hosted by The Smokestack (62 E. 7th Street), the historic, pre-Civil War venue served up atmosphere, inspiration, delectable local fare and an “Idea Gallery” with art-infused topic zones.

Following a brief introduction and project update by Ose Akinlotan (City of Dubuque), Mike Hoffman (Teska Associates, Inc.) and Bob Barber (Orion Planning + Design), participants were free to tour the gallery and topic stations, jot down ideas and graphically collaborate at their own pace. Topics included diversity, arts and entertainment, community safety, community health, green buildings, healthy local foods, and community knowledge and empowerment.
