Keynote - Carissa Halton
Landscape Design: More than Just Trees
DESCRIPTION: When Carissa Halton bought a home in a neighbourhood known for its crime, people asked: “Why would you live there?” It was affordable, close to downtown. But it was only after moving in that she realized the value of Alberta Avenue’s trees and parks: legacies of planners working a century ago.
OUTCOME: In this keynote, Carissa will share her lived experience of the impact public outdoor and green spaces had on her community. She will discuss why now, more than ever, advocates who speak “for the trees” (and public, outdoor spaces) need to be heard.
BIO: Carissa Halton is an award-winning writer, speaker, and facilitator. Her articles on politics, design and community have appeared in many publications including Today’s Parent, Alberta Views, Postmedia newspapers and numerous anthologies. Her debut book, Little Yellow House: Finding Community in a Changing Neighbourhood, is a sweet, funny exploration about life, heartbreak and resilience in Alberta Avenue and was a finalist for the 2019 Edmonton Book Prize. Carissa lives in Edmonton with her husband and three school-aged children.
