senseofplace LAB emerges in the interdisciplinary space of art, architecture and social engagement. It was founded as an artistic laboratory by Laura Halsey Brown in San Francisco in 2008, based on research/art in NYC and the Netherlands since 2000. senseofplace LAB develops interactive collaborative experiments that investigate the concept ‘sense of place’ and foster being ‘present in place’.

Sonja Hinrichsen examines urban and natural environments through exploration and research. Her work manifests in immersive video installations and interventions in nature. Her participatory project “Snow Drawings” engages communities worldwide. “In my artwork I examine environments – urban, industrial as well as natural environments. I am interested in the intersection between place – city or nature – and human perception and utilization thereof, throughout history.”

Placemaking and Civic Tech: Opportunities for Collaboration – Wednesday, March 16th, 3pm

Join leaders from across the landscape of civic innovation as they engage in an important discussion about how placemaking and civic tech can work together to create more resilient communities.  Mark Lakeman heads this panel of experts as they consider a range of questions and topics:

  • How can “analog” placemaking projects like Hayes Valley Art Works collaborate with the civic tech community to amplify neighborhood benefit?
  • How can the projects themselves be platforms for bringing new technology infrastructure, digital solutions, and educational opportunities to underserved communities?
  • What are the most pressing challenges facing our society that collaborative civic innovation should tackle?

Mark Lakeman is a national leader in the development of sustainable public places. In the last decade he has directed, facilitated, or inspired designs for more than three hundred new community-generated public places in Portland, Oregon alone. Through his leadership in Communitecture, Inc., and it’s various affiliates such as the The City Repair Project (501(c)3), The Village Building Convergence, and the Planet Repair Institute, he has also been instrumental in the development of dozens of participatory organizations and urban permaculture design projects across the United States and Canada. Mark works with governmental leaders, community organizations, and educational institutions in many diverse communities.

Ultimately, he is dedicated to the well-being of his fellow crew members on Spaceship Earth.

Ilana Lipsett is passionate about building community in urban settings and providing space and tools for people to re-imagine their cities and their relationship to place through creative pop-up events, spaces, public art or performance. She co-founded [freespace], a nationally recognized initiative to transform vacant buildings into temporary cultural and community hubs. She is the Community Manager for The Hall, an interim use pre-development project in San Francisco, and runs Community Engagement for Tidewater Capital, the real estate investment company that owns the Hall.
