Creative Placemaking is a resource for city officials, arts organizations, the philanthropic sector, and others interested in understanding strategies for leveraging the arts to help shape and revitalize the physical, social, and economic character of neighborhoods, cities, and towns.
 
In the words of the report, "Creative placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, improves local business viability and public safety, and brings diverse people together to celebrate, inspire, and be inspired."
 
Creative placemaking is one of the tools that mayors can use to tackle their design challenges, whether it is building artist live/work spaces in abandoned warehouses, designing youth employment programs around mentoring relationships with artists, or curating a performing arts series in urban public places.
 
Creative Placemaking features sections on the:
 
  • Challenges for creative placemaking such as clearing regulatory hurdles and developing evaluation metrics;
  • Components of successful projects including mobilizing public will and designing around distinctiveness;
  • Recommendations for integrating creative placemaking into public policies.
