This training is designed for organizers and community development professionals in civic sectors such as transportation, public health, and economic development who are interested in addressing community challenges and strengthening places by implementing asset-based and equity-focused programs that engage local artists as creative problem solvers. Participants learn how to support and train artists as leaders and innovators and develop customized programming suited to your context. This training is best leveraged to kickstart momentum in a community by having teams of 2-4 trainees from the same location, community or issue interest.  These Intensives are presented with the Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis, and the Lighthouse Writers Workshop.
