MASSCreative and MA Association of Community Development Corporations Partner on Creative Placemaking Workshops



MASSCreative is partnering with the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations (MACDC) to engage in an intensive, one-year program to build knowledge and advance creative placemaking with artists and community developers across the Commonwealth.

Creative placemaking is a strategy to shape, reshape, or preserve communities and local economies by intentionally leveraging the power of arts, culture, and creativity.

As part of this work, MASSCreative and MACDC are hosting a series of workshops to bring together artists, designers, planners, architects, and community developers. Workshops are scheduled for Salem (May 16th), Worcester (June 27th), and Holyoke (June 29th).

Over the course of the workshop, attendees will learn more about Creative Placemaking -- what it is, what are the opportunities, and how one can get started in communities. Presentations will provide overviews of the field of community development, how artists can best navigate and form productive relationships with developers, and how community developers can best work with artists in meaningful ways. In each city, attendees will tour local examples of creative placemaking and hear about how they came to fruition.

The workshops are free but space is limited.
