Place Making is a hot, “buzzy” term we keep hearing in economic development. Likewise in public art. Buzzwords are fickle and grant cycles move on but every so often trends hit on something deeply rooted. What is the value of place? Can we work together across sectors to seed growth of local resources and build stronger and more sustainable communities?

This symposium is free to all attendees. The hosts hope this invites a dynamic mix on the day, and allows resources to de devoted to your travel and stay. Register here: https://www.gfcair.com/
