On August 23, 2011 we conducted the “For the Love of Akron” workshop at the University of Akron. The event was sponsored by the Akron office of the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation and drew over 200 participants. The event also featured Knight Soul of the Community lead consultant Katherine Loflin, the team from The Civic Commons who provided the video booth and graphic recording by Michelle Royal of HDYI .
Lots of great ideas were generated & shared. Lots of blimp references as well as mentions of Swenson’s hamburgers and Luigi’s pizza. Check out the photo set here.
We even had an earthquake!
