Do YOU have an Intervention Idea that You want to See in our Area?

We want to hear from YOU! Join your peers of Urban Intervention on Thursday, March 13 at the “Machine Shop”, an innovative very new (not quite finished), co-working space at 4 South Wahsatch Avenue in Downtown Colorado Springs.

We want to hear your thoughts in a brief 7-minute presentation of what you would like to see happen. Your ideas don’t have to be in Downtown Colorado Springs, in fact they don’t even have to be IN Colorado Springs. They just need to be accessible and cool ideas! Join us, present, or simply observe and be ready to assist. We will have a computer and projector ready and yes, we are encouraging a Pecha Kucha format (20 slides, 20 seconds each).

The audience will decide on at least one intervention from the evening to take on, and you’ll have many hands in assisting making your intervention ideas a reality! For ideas and inspiration, a great article on Tactical Urbanism can be found here: http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2012/03/guide-tactical-urbanism/1387/

A great Denver resource of Tactical Urbanism can be found here: http://www.tacticalurbanismhere.com/

And of course we post many ideas and thoughts on interventions on our Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/BetterBlockPikesPeak

For those who are unaware of what Colorado Springs Urban Intervention is, please check the About Section. The brief synopsis is that we are a multi-award-winning organization of people who get $hit done. In the past two years, we have won awards from USGBC Colorado, Colorado Springs Downtown Partnership, and Fort Carson for Better Block Pikes Peak and Curbside Cuisine.

Hope to see you there, follow the comments at this web page for updates on the event!

    Some Additional Notes:
    The Machine Shop is still under construction and therefore will require our “tactical intervention” skills in finding a place to sit. Please bring a chair, or perhaps a bucket, that you could donate to CSUI for future interventions.
    We will provide beer, but need to know attendance. Please RSVP via Facebook, or send an email to springsurbanintervention@gmail.com to let us know how to prepare.
    If you are desiring to pitch an idea, please let me know so that we can get you on the list. Emails can be sent to me at john@evstudio.com. See you next week!
