SHARE Asheville: Map Jam

map jam top image v3

In October over 20 residents gathered together to share food and brainstorm a very comprehensive list of all the sharing, collaborative and community supporting based resources, businesses, organizations and places in Asheville.  We used a toolkit developed by Shareable.net and joined more than 50 cities nationwide and around the world who participated in the 2 week Shareable Cities “Map Jam.”

The map is still under development and we welcome any suggestions for things that should be added.  Please fill out this form and let us know!

Earlier this year Asheville resident and writer for Shareable.net, Amy Hamilton, published an awesome guide to many of the sharing based resources that Asheville has to offer.  You can find it here: http://www.shareable.net/blog/asheville-a-shareable-mountain-town

Lea Mclellan wrote an article about SHARE Asheville and the Map Jam we hosted on October 23rd and it was published this week in the Mountain Xpress: How well does Asheville share?
