ArtPlace: A Collaborative Approach to Creative Placemaking

Monday, October 15, 2:00pm – 3:30pm

Key Biscayne A

Organized by Carol Coletta, director, ArtPlace; Tatiana Hernandez, arts program associate, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Presented by Anita Contini, program lead, Arts and Culture, Bloomberg Philanthropies; Dennis Scholl, VP/arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; Beth Takekawa, executive director, Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience.

Based on the first eighteen months of operation (and two grants rounds) by ArtPlace, this session serves as a frank discussion of the rewards and challenges of accelerating creative placemaking. Participants will learn how ArtPlace defines creative placemaking, the expected results, and how outcomes are being measured, including the just-announced list of America's Most Vibrant Arts Neighborhoods. Participants will also hear how an effective collaboration among funders and the federal government is taking shape.
