Creative Placemaking for Stronger Community

July 24, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am


Placemaking is a creative means to planning, designing and reimagining public spaces shared by people and their communities. As the world emerges post-pandemic, how do recent events shape how we view our neighborhood and public spaces? What role can artists have in creative placemaking?

In this session, Dr. Maria Rosario Jackson and Jason Schupbach, contributing authors and section editors of the recent publication The Routledge Handbook of Placemaking, will discuss how creative placemaking can:

  • Reimagine the future and remember the past
  • Advance equity
  • Build stronger relationships
  • Support cross-sector collaboration
  • Create lasting community impact
