Community Builder on Bikes!
Celebrate DownCity Design’s community design studios with a live bicycle tour of their past public projects! DCD will offer a safe, socially distanced tour experience featuring projects in the West End and South Side neighborhoods. Hear from youth and design educators about their design and fabrication process, discover new community resources, and learn more about how to support and participate in DownCity’s free design programs. Hop on your bike and join us for the full moving party, drop in on any of the project sites by foot or car, or follow along via livestream from home.
