National Dialogue, Local Impact
CREATIVE PLACEMAKING AND CHANGE
Communities around the Washington, DC region are experiencing rapid changes that intersect with concerns for arts and cultural programming. This conference will discuss the ramifications of issues, such as gentrification, environmental instability, and the loss of cultural and historic assets to the region with the aim of developing creative solutions and strong community leadership through an engagement with the arts and design.
Interactive sessions will provide attendees with strategies to bring back to their own communities. Topics include artists and designers as change agents, public/private partnerships, grassroots change, placekeeping, zoning and policy, and advancing equity, social and environmental justice. Those interested in public policy, neighborhood change, urban and environmental planning, and social equity as advanced through Creative Placemaking are encouraged to register.
