Rural Placemaking: Making the Most of Creativity in your Community
RURAL PLACEMAKING: MAKING THE MOST OF CREATIVITY IN YOUR COMMUNITY (A RURAL VOICES ISSUE)
This issue of Rural Voices examines Creative Placemaking as it is practiced in rural communities. The term “creative placemaking” is only about a decade old, but rural community organizations have long taken on community-building endeavors that have included the arts. Creative placemaking offers the explicit recognition that arts and artists, when fully engaged with local stakeholders, are often a gel or a catalyst toward sustained community betterment and economic growth.
