Revisiting Asset-based Mapping

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What community assets should you be mapping? Revisit asset-based mapping with two interactive Los Angeles maps that show cultural points and movement building tools to see what tips you can take back home. Asset-based mapping highlights existing strengths and creates a usable community map. This goes against the grain of research that points to deficiencies in communities for long-term recommendations. Participants will walk away with new ideas to bring research into the hands of communities.
