Creative Placemaking on Vacant Properties: Lessons Learned from the Field

August 23, 2018 | 12:00 - 1:00 pm EDT: Click here to register 

What is “creative placemaking,” and how can it be used to support the equitable revitalization of vacant properties? In this webinar, we will discuss how arts and culture can be integrated into community planning and development, and highlight key findings from the new report, Creative Placemaking on Vacant Properties: Lessons Learned from Four Cities. The report explores how four cities – Kalamazoo, Michigan; Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania; Newburgh, New York; and Macon, Georgia – used creative placemaking on vacant properties, and details the impacts of their efforts, challenges faced, and lessons learned. By the end of the webinar, participants will gain a deeper understanding of creative placemaking, how it can be used as a tool to revitalize vacant properties, and strategies to engage residents and other local stakeholders in crafting and implementing successful projects.

Presenter: Danielle Lewinski, Vice President and Director of Michigan Initiatives, Center for Community Progress
