Advancing Racial Equity through Regenerative Place-Making
By Duron Chavis

7:30 pm Campus Center Carroll Room - Free and open to the public

The built environment of urban cities across the country bear the scars of racial inequality inherent in slavery, Jim Crow discrimination and economic marginalization. Place-making capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and wellbeing. Such transformation requires working with community residents as well as municipal, nonprofit partners and philanthropic investment in the planning, designing and implementation of community places.

From the original 13 acres purchased in 1871 to the 147 acres that make up the contiguous campus today, the Smith College campus has grown and changed to respond to the needs of the times. What makes the campus meaningful to you? Visitors are invited to consider their own relationship to the surrounding landscape and share their thoughts and memories. As Smith undertakes development of a new landscape master plan, MAKING SPACE, is a timely exhibit which encourages viewers to reflect on the past and consider the future of the campus. 

Making Space: The Changing Landscape of Smith College was adapted from the research and writing of Krista Smathers ’18 with contributing author and researcher Faye Wolf.
