Creative Placemaking

This video discusses impacts, challenges and benefits of creative placemaking in communities. Creative placemaking can activate public spaces, bring residents together, and increase economic activity. It identifies challenges, including issues related to displacement, acceptance of all community members, and engaging with a wider audience to increase support of creative placemaking. Panelists provide a variety of examples of creative placemaking projects that support community interaction, including examples from rural and urban spaces.
