I n 2016, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) launched the CreatINg Places program to leverage the power of crowdfunding with state funding, to help communities improve their public spaces. Wabash, Indiana has been a leader in utilizing the platform and the CreatINg places partnership. During this session, IHCDA's Placemaking Manager and Patronicity's Indiana Director will take you on a journey to see the spaces that have been transformed. With stops at the Wabash Inclusive Playground, Rainforest Play Park, and the Wabash Riverfront Plaza participants can experience first-hand how these locations have been transformed and how the community engages with the space. You'll hear directly from project creators and Wabash community leaders about how crowdgranting became part of their plan for community development and how they brought that vision to life.
