What do you love about where you live? And how do you show it?

Meet Peter Kageyama, an acclaimed community development consultant and author of “For the Love of Cities”, as he kicks off­ the first event in the Connect Raleigh lecture series by highlighting what makes Raleigh and other cities such lovable, engaged, and innovative communities. Peter will share how loving your city and getting involved in your community can help make Raleigh a better place to live.

Topics for this lecture will focus on Raleigh’s downtown district, connecting communities to their neighborhoods, and encouraging creative use of public space.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5 p.m. with a special performance by Shaw University's drumline. A reception and book signing with Peter will follow the lecture at 6:30 p.m. with an appearance from local artists affiliated with Raleigh Makers Market and a special showcase from local partners: DECO, Raleigh Murals Project, and FLIGHT. The event also will feature the winners of the recent iDEA Raleigh competition: a Pop-up Parkour Playspace at Dix Park and Big Chess Across the City.

Connect Raleigh is a free lecture series featuring nationally known speakers who focus on topics of interest to Raleigh residents. The series will include additional lecture events in 2018 and is sponsored in part by Downtown Raleigh Alliance.
