Share How creative placemaking can help build more resilient communities

Event Details

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.

Presenter: 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.
