Creativity, Architecture and Community Development with the Rose Fellowship
Join us for inspiring, first-hand accounts from six Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellows who have spent the last three years integrating design thinking, community engagement, and systems change into affordable housing and community development organizations across the country. Each fellow brings a unique perspective from working and learning alongside partners in their communities. They will share what has challenged them, where they have found inspiration, and what impact we can see from their work.
Michael Chavez, Project Development Manager at YouthBuild Boston and a former Rose Fellow with the Fairmount CDC Collaborative, will moderate a conversation with the fellows and audience after the presentations about the universal lessons learned from doing this kind of work.
