Perseverance Theatre Summerfest 2014

2 March 2014

Perseverance Theatre has a long history of creating new work. A great deal of that new work embodies one of Perseverance’s core values: regional voice. In 35 years, Perseverance Theatre has premiered close to 70 new works. Two of the challenges of creating this work are the distance and isolation of being located in Alaska. These also serve as great opportunities to be unique in perspective and specific in terms of the type of work we do. This article is part of a series of four articles on Creative Placemaking publishing in conjunction with the 2014 ArtPlace America Grantee Summit.

Creative Placemaking by Pillsbury House + Theatre, Minneapolis

1 March 2014

We completed our ArtPlace funded Arts on Chicago initiative in June of 2013. Arts on Chicago engaged forty artists in twenty placemaking projects to turn a ten-block stretch of Chicago Avenue into an arts district. It was a massive effort that taught us a lot about what Creative Placemaking means in the context of our South Minneapolis community. This post is part of a series of four articles on Creative Placemaking publishing in conjunction with the 2014 ArtPlace America Grantee Summit. The Summit will livestream Monday, March 3 to Wednesday, March 5 on HowlRound.TV. In Twitter, use #ArtPlace to participate in the conversation.

The Great Chicago Fire Festival

Creative Placemaking & Redmoon Theater

1 March 2014

The Great Chicago Fire Festival is a new signature event for the City of Chicago. It is a citywide spectacle, co-produced by Redmoon Theater and the City of Chicago. It will be Mayor Emanuel’s first major cultural initiative and is wedded to his federally funded effort to convert the Chicago River into a hub of downtown recreation. What Mardi Gras is to New Orleans and the Running of the Bulls is to Pamplona, that’s what The Great Chicago Fire Festival will become to the Windy City.

Doing Art to Change a Place—March 3-5, 2014

28 February 2014

“Creative Placemaking” describe projects in which artists and arts organizations are explicitly working as part of a larger strategy to help shape their communities’ social, physical, and economic characters. In other words, these projects are doing art to change a place. This work is not new—in ancient Greece, the theater was the literal, spiritual, and civic center of the community—but putting a name on it is. And creating a sense of community among previously unconnected projects is new as well. This article is part of a series of four articles on Creative Placemaking publishing in conjunction with the 2014 ArtPlace America Grantee Summit. The Summit will livestream Mon, March 3 to Wed, March 5 on HowlRound.TV. In Twitter, use #ArtPlace to participate in the conversation.
