ArtPlace America is a 10-year project of a number of foundations, federal agencies, and banks dedicated to positioning arts and culture as a core sector of community planning and development. Every year, ArtPlace gathers its grantees and partners in-person to reflect on their work and the path ahead for creative placemaking. This year’s gathering focuses on the set of practices, lines of inquiry, and strategic initiatives needed to help deepen the understanding of what creative placemaking has to offer to communities across the country. Click here for more details, and please join us virtually for this year’s event!
