March 16, 2-3 pm Eastern: History of Creative Placemaking in the United States Part 2
Presenter: Leonardo Vazquez, AICP/PP, Founding Director, The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking
The term creative placemaking was coined only a decade ago, but it has been happening in various forms in the US since at least the late 19th century. This webinar will explore the earliest work in creative placemaking in America. Participants will learn about the pioneering work of Charles Mulford Robinson, Edgar Lee Hewett and others, and discover how placemaking through arts and culture has evolved over more than a century.
After the webinars, please join us for a half hour of small group conversations online. There, you can talk about the topic with other participants and grow your connections.
