Artist-Engaged Creative Placemaking and Community Engagement as a strategy for Authentic Community Development

When: Wednesday, November 14, 2018, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Location: Third Sector England Community Conference Center

Join MAPC and Springboard for the Arts for this exciting workshop exploring the nuts and bolts of creative placemaking as an approach to creative community development. We will cover practical tools and strategies for working with local artists in creative placemaking and community engagement to address your community’s challenges and opportunities. Learn about examples and models from across the United States and how you can create your own project suited to your local context. You will walk out of the discussion with your own plan of action!

Artists, planners, community developers, community advocates, and anyone interested in creative community development is encouraged to attend.
