ARTSFUND SOCIAL IMPACT OF THE ARTS STUDY
The ArtsFund Social Impact of the Arts Study frames a new way of understanding the public value of the arts in King County. How are arts advancing community priorities and positive outcomes for participants and non-participants alike? With primary focus on youth development & education, health & wellness, and neighborhood vitality, the study probes the potential for arts to influence more equitable outcomes. The report combines a county-wide public poll; a landscape scan of King County arts, cultural, and heritage nonprofits; a substantive review of 150+ national research resources; and case studies of ten regional arts organizations.

BLACK SOIL: OUR BETTER NATURE
Black Soil, a social enterprise based out of Lexington, KY, launched in 2017 by Ashley C. Smith and Trevor Claiborn, her partner in life and in work. Their focus is to revive and reclaim the agricultural heritage of Black Kentuckians to build economic opportunities for 21st century Black farmers and producers through handson technical support and strategies including educational workshops, community events like Farm Tours and Farm-to-Table Dinners that showcase Black farmers and Black culinary artists, and by lifting up the stories and history of Black agricultural experience through art, cultural sharing, and communitybuilding.
BlackSpace challenges architects, planners, urban designers, artists, and all curators of built spaces to unlearn traditional values and rethink Manifesto-based practice. They create spaces for Black urbanists to use talent, culture and rituals to design Black futures, demanding a present and future where Black people, spaces, and culture matter and thrive.
CARA COURAGE TED TALK
In her Ted Talk, Cara Courage speaks to how placemaking is about telling stories; stories that help people better understand and enhance the place where they live, work and play. Placemaking is a community-led design process and its most active tool is the voice – it powers the ideas and the hammers and paintbrushes.
