What is placemaking? Who does it? Who does it benefit? When is it appropriate? Where does it occur? How can creative placemaking be used as a tool for improving public safety, maintaining cultural economies, or advancing neighborhood revitalization? What is the interplay between creative placemaking, public health, and gentrification?


If these questions spark your interest or apply to your current work in the Central District, please join the Central Area Collaborative (CAC) on December 7th at Langston Hughes Cultural Arts Center in a community-rooted workshop with Enterprise Community Partner's Dr. Meghan Venable -Thomas and EcoDistrict's Accelerator Manager Edward Hill in bringing an interactive 1/2 day workshop on bringing culture, arts, and creativity into municipal- and community-led planning into neighborhood-scale equitable development efforts.


More on Placemaking: Creative placemaking linked with public health, economics, and collaborative-impact can help planning and community development to be more informed, human-centric, and holistic. Through interactive activities and facilitated discussions, community development corporation staff, municipal staff, artists, and other community stakeholders - participants are exploring how public health, resilience, and creative placemaking can be utilized as a whole-systems approach to advancing a more informed, engaged, and equitable Central District.


"The Central Area Collaborative - Helping the Healing"


+Note: This space and these topics will be focusing on Black and POC-led initiatives as a path towards increased ownership and leadership in neighborhood-scale redevelopment, development, and sustainability. The priority for attendance is for historically or statistically marginalized or unprofessionalized stakeholders to hold and have space in these conversations. Thank you for your understanding.
