Creative Placemaking Summit 4

October 4, 2018 8:00 AM

Arts and culture. They shape who we are--connect us to what we love--forming our identity. Similarly, they connect us to our communities, too. Taking pride in and claiming our "place" stems from that connectedness and how we describe it to others. At Creative Placemaking Summit 4, we'll explore how creative placemaking, through an arts and cultural lens, can amplify our idea of identity. We will use metrics and exploration to discover ways to build our brand as a region-find words we can all use. #LansingPlacemakers
