community development

municipal leaders,
urban planners, and design firms

Creative community leaders and planners know that engaging artists and cultural sector professionals in their development, economic, conservation, and resiliency planning efforts results in more innovative solutions, more vibrant outcomes, and more engaged community members.

While I can bring my own cultural sector expertise to these projects, I prefer to work with clients to identify the artists and cultural organizations living and working within their communities. By engaging those local leaders, we can develop municipality-specific cultural activation strategies that: build awareness and engagement amongst the wider community during visioning and planning phases; enable mitigation projects during construction, vacancy or crisis phases; and catalyze community excitement and attachment once development, rebuilding, or recovery work is complete.
