Creative Placemaking: Creating Communities We Love Through Arts & Culture, Diverse Partners and Community Spaces

Make the most of creativity in your community. Creative placemaking leverages arts and culture to engage, revitalize and reshape communities.

Creative Placemaking harnesses the power of arts and culture to allow for genuine public engagement. It is as much about “doing” as it is about planning, leveraging the power of diverse partnerships and hands-on participation to turn under-appreciated assets into focal points for a new community vitality.

IN THIS COURSE, YOU WILL:

  • Learn what Creative Placemaking is and why and how it supports more vibrant, sustainable, equitable and economically successful communities

  • Identify specific strategies for artist/community collaborations

  • Learn how to assemble a strong cross-sector planning and implementation team

  • Identify community problems and challenges suited for a Creative Placemaking approach

  • Map your community’s assets, including those that may be hidden or under-appreciated

  • Learn a creative “doing” approach to community projects

  • Learn to identify and tap funding sources

  • Identify ways to market, promote and otherwise benefit from your unique community and your creative placemaking projects

PLUS YOU’LL RECEIVE:

  • A Creative Placemaking workbook that you have begun to populate for your own community application during the course

  • Glossaries to support communication with partners from across different sectors
