ArtPlace could make the difference in communities across America

Ann Markusen argues the importance of "creative placemaking."

"Creative Placemaking" as defined by the NEA are places where "arts, culture and creative industries come together to make communities a great place to live work and play." Ann Markusen, one of leading experts in this field and author of "Creative Placemaking," makes it clear in a white paper prepared along with Anne Gadwa of Metris Consulting for the Mayors' Institute on City Design, that "creative placemaking's livability and economic development outcomes have the potential to radically change the future of American towns and cities...(designed to) foster entrepreneurs and creative industries that generate jobs and income."
