Why are we drawn to certain spaces and places? Why do we feel comfortable lingering in some spaces and letting our own creativity escape for a while? Why should the development community care? Learn the answers to these questions and experience creative placemaking first-hand on Oct. 16 in Grand Center!

Creative placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, improves local business viability and public safety, and brings diverse people together. When artistic interventions make spaces more livable, they add value to real estate and help worker retention.
Join us October 16 to discuss the intentional intersection of arts and real estate development. Artists and developers will discuss the activation of spaces, the engagement of community, and the business case that supports the developers investment in creative placemaking.
