LAGI Community Workshops

LAGI directors work with stakeholders of communities to assess interest, needs, and develop design ideas for integrating renewable energy or other sustainable infrastructure into the city. The workshops aim to change the way that people think about renewable energy technologies such as solar, wind, and hydro. LAGI introduces participants to the idea of using new technologies as the media for public art and creative placemaking and facilitate the generation of site-specific sketches that are informed by the unique context and strategic plans of the city. Following the workshops LAGI continues to work with local partners to build support towards implementation.
