“In creative placemaking… community sectors partner to strategically shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, tribe, city, or region around arts and cultural activities.”
-Ann Markusen and Anne Gadwa Nicodemus authors of Creative Placemaking, a white paper commissioned by the Mayors’ Institute on City Design
In this lecture, artist and curator Jessica Wimbley will explore the connections between the public, private, not-for-profit, and community sectors regarding the arts and career opportunities in arts management. Issues in visual arts that intersect with finance, economics, law, education, business, and management will be discussed.
