A few highlights

Making Their Place in Chattanooga

3-week placemaking course wraps up

This summer, 12 girls from Hamilton County set out on a three-week journey throughout Chattanooga. 

The placemakers met with government agents, heads of local organizations, designers, and social entrepreneurs to better understand local problems and challenges. At the end of the course, they pitched a public prospectus for a problem they observed in Chattanooga and how they proposed to address it.

For the past two years, MBD has empowered women to become bold entrepreneurs. This year, it's all about the girls.
