Creative Placemaking: What’s in It for Miami?

Creative Placemaking: What’s in It for Miami?Wednesday, May 30, 7pm-9pm – Museum of Art and Design at MDC Freedom Tower, 600 Biscayne Blvd, Miami

This panel will discuss how to activate “creative placemaking” initiatives, and how to balance communities’ mobilization (or lack thereof), the top-down approaches of policy-makers, and the profit drives of urban developers. Recently, “placemaking” has become a buzzword among policy makers, foundations, and community activists. As public institutions reduce their involvement in the arts, culture, and education, private stakeholders have stepped in to address communities’ needs for inclusive public spaces. These spaces, ranging from small children playgrounds to entire arts districts, are ideally conceived in dialogue among communities, public policy agents, interested businesses and non-profits, and others. @MOADMDC
