Tactical Urbanism, Interview with Roger Cummings of Juxtaposition Arts

Tactical Urbanism refers to projects done without permission from the local government or with any formal planning – it is DIY, low cost, and temporary. On this episode, we explore all kinds of Tactical Urbanism projects and find out who it’s for, its possibilities, and its limitations.

Then, I interview Roger Cummings, co-founder of the Minneapolis-based nonprofit Juxtaposition Arts, on the organization’s early adoption of Tactical Urbanism and how they’ve used it to engage community members that might otherwise be left out of the urban planning process.

This episode is all about vacant lots - where did they come from and what are we doing with them? We'll explore uses of vacant lots from the perfectly pragmatic to the more... creative.
