With the damage caused from hurricanes, tornadoes and floods around the United States, more communities are looking to be more ‘resilient.’ Resiliency is not just about creative physical improvements to withstand storms; it is also connects to a community’s ability to revitalize quickly after disaster. Arts and culture can play a big role in helping communities recover. We will explore examples from Louisiana, New Jersey and Missouri, and discuss how to connect creative placemaking with resiliency in community dialogues.
