Platforms in the Park, presented by Chicago Ideas in partnership with Xfinity, is a city-wide initiative to empower, connect, inspire, and activate all of Chicago through local, community-led experiences. Learn more at this experience (with a block party vibe and BBQ!) participants will explore the tangled web of culture that gives a place its character, from its art to its food to its infrastructure. In a mix of conversations from metropolitan planning experts and performances from local artists (including some firefighters doing hip-hop), we?ll unearth the ways that urban planners and community stakeholders work alongside neighborhood residents build on the entirety of a place?s ecology as they develop its future.Who you'll hear from: Blaise B., Firehouse Community Arts Center, New Covenant Community Development Corporation, North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council, North Lawndale Restorative Justice Community Court, and UCAN.
