Perseverance Theatre Summerfest 2014

02 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. The Summit will livestream Mon, March 3 to Wed, March 5 on HowlRound.TV. In Twitter, use #ArtPlace to participate in the conversation.

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.
