As communities across the country grapple with our nation’s vast legacy of racism, one that permeates our everyday life today, creative placemaking has a unique role to play in imagining what a more equitable present and future might look like. Bringing together the arts, culture, and creative decision-making in the process of planning and nurturing our future, creative placemaking is a potent tool to tackle inequity today and build a just future. In this recorded webinar, learn how to incorporate racial equity at every turn in your project—from conceiving it, to bringing it to life.
