Cultivate character and connection on your block with little free libraries, gathering spaces, gardens and more!
Register now for a free Pocket Places workshop:
Open to people from all neighbourhoods across Greater Victoria!
Book exchange boxes, benches, community info boards – many easy and small enhancements can help create community in your neighbourhood. Learn how you can start a small project with your neighbours. Whether you’re into building things by hand or repurposing existing materials, you can create a little node for book sharing, conversation and informal gathering of neighbours.
Led by members of Greater Victoria Placemaking Network, and co-hosted by Building Resilient Neighbourhoods Resilient Streets program, and Fairfield Gonzales Community Association, this workshop will include: inspiring examples of pocket places, funding sources; finding and reusing materials; tools; communication and social media; creating a launch party; getting Little Free Libraries mapped; and more.
