Creative Placemaking & Neighborhood Reinvestment: Engaging Artists to Support Community Revitalization

Location: Brunswick Ballroom - Room B (Lower Level)
Date: Fri, October 20
Time: 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM

Arts and artists can bring a new level of energy and creativity to your community revitalization efforts. How much benefit they bring depends a lot on how you engage them. Hear from experienced community development practitioners who have worked with artists in the implementation of plans, including those using the Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit program. In this session, you will learn to identify ways to better engage artists in community revitalization and better connect arts and artists with social and economic issues in their communities.
