The arts aren’t a diversion or a luxury. They are important for the well-being of individuals and communities. Many people already know about the power of the arts to enhance economic development. This webinar will discuss how the arts can help people develop and keep intellectual skills, build social connections, and more. We will explore how creative placemaking can support the elements of human needs placemaking.
The lead presenter will be Leonardo Vazquez, AICP/PP. Vazquez is a national award-winning urban planner and a leader in the field of creative placemaking. He founded and directs The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking, and designed and directs the Certification in Creative Placemaking program. He is also a Visiting Instructor at The Ohio State University, where he teaches courses in arts and entertainment planning, planning ethics and local economic development. He is the author of Leading from the Middle: Strategic Thinking for Urban Planning and Community Development Professionals, the co-editor of Diálogos: Placemaking in Latino Communties, and the creator of The Placemaker’s Advisor blog. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners and in 2012 was awarded the American Planning Association’s National Planning Leadership Award for Advancing Diversity and Social Justice in Honor of Paul Davidoff.
