CULTURE MAPPING 90404
Facilitated by 18th Street Arts Center, Culture Mapping 90404 is a community produced map highlighting the history and cultural assets of the Pico neighborhood. Cultural assets are people, places, events and organizations, both past and present, that serve as cultural anchors within this community. In collaboration with the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, they have trained community volunteers to document cultural resources, memories, and histories in the Pico neighborhood of Santa Monica. ACTA has a successful record of creating culturally sensitive and meaningful cultural asset maps with diverse communities across Southern California.

Released by the Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis (CRUEA) at the George Washington University School of Business, Smart Growth America/LOCUS, Cushman & Wakefield, and Yardi Matrix, identified 761 regionally significant walkable urban places (i.e. WalkUPs) in the country’s 30 largest metros. While these WalkUPs occupy less than 1 percent of the land mass in those 30 metros, they punch far above their weight economically. To get a sense of their impact, and the level of walkable urbanism in each city, Foot Traffic Ahead examines the share of total retail, office, and multifamily housing space located in WalkUPs and then ranks the metros.

IMAGININGS: A DIY GUIDE TO ARTS-BASED COMMUNITY DIALOGUE
The DIY Imaginings Guide provides everything you need to know to host a vibrant, creative, equitable, and powerful community dialogue. From 2014-2016, the USDAC worked with three cohorts of volunteer Cultural Agents, each forming a learning community to support their local cultural organizing. Each Cultural Agent hosted a a public gathering using arts-based methods to envision their communities’ futures. Part performance, part facilitated dialogue these gatherings brought together groups of artists, organizers, and other community members to imagine what their neighborhoods might look. After supporting three rounds of gatherings they created this guide.
