“Creative placemaking” is community development tool that has garnered increased attention and funding by the federal government, municipalities, and private foundations.

Join us to learn why creative placemaking is receiving widespread support and how rural communities take advantage of these opportunities.

Guest speakers working in rural communities across the United States will share their experiences with creative placemaking, the impact it has had in their hometowns, and how they have garnered ongoing support for creative and arts-based work.

This webinar is the second of a two-part series of Rural Placemaking - a collaboration between buildingcommunityWORKSHOP and the Housing Assistance Council (HAC), funded in part by a NEA Our Town Knowledge Building Grant. The purpose of Rural Placemaking is to build understanding and practice of creative placemaking in rural communities. Both HAC and [bc] seek to promote creative placemaking as an important tool in comprehensive community development and to build knowledge of the practice within HAC’s member network.
