Neighborhood Gems: Behind the Scenes

This is a free event. Register to join via Zoom Webinar. The event will also be streamed on Facebook Live.

Join Historic Milwaukee and Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service for a live virtual Doors Open program! The event will feature 5-minute presentations about eight community place-based projects in the words of community members that know them best.

The program, moderated by NNS’s Adam Carr, will explore projects that might catch your eye as you drive or walk by, that also have incredible “behind the scenes” stories. During Doors Open (and beyond) you can jump from this virtual presentation into neighborhood exploration to experience each of these projects for yourself.
