Can “chromatic homes” be the secret sauce for neighborhood regeneration? Is it possible that an ordinary building can become a neighborhood icon by painting it with bold and lively colors? How does beauty shape a place and make it sustainable? Can a chromatic home bring joy, pride, hope, renewal, reinvestment, and prosperity?
Join Dr. John “Hans” Gilderbloom as he presents Chromatic Homes as a social movement not just here in the U.S. but across the world in Russia, Cuba, Italy, Netherlands as people try to rebuild their neighborhoods.
