Building More Resilient Communities Through Creative Placemaking
Part of a webinar series on creative placemaking that offer insights for newcomers and seasoned practitioners alike. Join us for 1 hour of presentation and dialogue, and stay the extra half hour at the end for unstructured networking with peers. This interactive, virtual event will explore the qualities that help communities thrive after difficult challenges. Many communities in the United States face a combination of social, cultural, economic and environmental challenges: flooding, storms, disease, poverty, oppression, and more. Resilience is more than creative physical improvements to withstand storms; it also connects to a community’s ability to revitalize quickly after disaster. Arts and culture can play a big role in helping communities recover. The instructor will explore examples from Louisiana, New Jersey and Missouri, and discuss how to connect creative placemaking with resiliency in community dialogues.
Please note that the $20/webinar fee supports the work of The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking, a 501 c (3) nonprofit organization that offers expertise and peer learning to leaders who seek creative placemaking knowledge and skills to foster more just, equitable, and livable communities through art and creative process.
