Upcoming events and opportunities

January 26, 2-3 pm eastern:  Artists as Social Change Agents

Webinar.  Supports healing, recovery and resilience

The arts can help make communities better for everyone. But how? This conversation explores how the arts can change what people know and believe, and how they engage in their communities, which are fundamental to how communities change. You will explore typical community cultural dynamics, and why it is so difficult to address obstacles such as the tyranny of custom and the comfort of powerlessness.

After the webinar, 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.

Speaker:  Leonardo Vazquez, AICP/PP, Founding Director, The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking
