How do we engage historically excluded voices from planning and community engagement processes? This week, the Karp Strategies team explored the PLACE IT! methodology with James Rojas, whose groundbreaking community engagement tool uses memory and tactile model-building to foster a sense of belonging amongst participants. “People talk about problems, but they build solutions,” he remarked. PLACE IT! is one of the most effective and beloved engagement tools that we use to build community members’ voices into the design process. The firm is tremendously excited to present PLACE IT! along with James at International Economic Development Council (IEDC)'s Annual Conference in Atlanta this September.
