Walking Tour of Woodlawn
Wednesday, May 8, 2024
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Learn about the community-led revitalization of Woodlawn, a thriving historic business district just east of downtown Birmingham, in a walking tour led by REV Birmingham and community partners. Hear about the rich history of the neighborhood and REV Birmingham’s unique approach to commercial revitalization that includes working with community facilitators to strengthen the business community, enrich the district with placemaking initiatives and events, and become a hub for equitable entrepreneurship in the city. The tour includes visits to REV Birmingham's offices housed in SocialVenture, a once vacant warehouse-turned-meeting, co-working, and change-making space, and Woodlawn Marketplace, a retail incubator that features long-time Woodlawn Street Market vendors. Plus, see the newly renovated Woodlawn Theater, Dr. Henry Panion's music studio and teaching lab, and The Way, an alley featuring murals painted by female artists.
