We support established Creative Placemaking practitioners that work in disinvested communities and seek to improve the bedrock conditions of low income people.

FOCUS AREA OVERVIEW
We believe that sharing lessons about how and when Creative Placemaking contributes to comprehensive community development is crucial to the arts and community development fields.
