WEBINAR: Cultural districts and cultural institutions: suns or black holes?

April 3, 2019
2:00 pmto3:00 pm

One of the first things that many people think about in creative placemaking is creating a cultural district or building a large cultural institution. While districts and institutions can become catalysts for community-wide creativity and revitalization, they can also absorb a lot of time, energy and resources that could be used effectively elsewhere in the community. Learn how creative placemaking can make it more likely that districts and institutions have a broader impact on their communities.
