Cultural districts and cultural institutions: suns or black holes?
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
One of the first things that many people think about in creative placemaking is creating a cultural district or building a large cultural institution. While districts and institutions can become catalysts for community-wide creativity and revitalization, they can also absorb a lot of time, energy and resources that could be used effectively elsewhere in the community. Learn how creative placemaking can make it more likely that districts and institutions have a broader impact on their communities.
The lead presenter for all sessions 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.
