56 – Creative Placemaking: A Discussion with Furthermore Artist Collective & Van Alen Institute

Creative placemaking is the practice of partnering public, private, nonprofit, and community groups to form and implement a strategy to transform a neighborhood, and it is a concept that is being embraced across the country. We visit with Steven Thompson of the Van Alen Institute (www.vanalen.org), as well as Natalie Campbell and Jose Ruiz of the Furthermore Artist Collective (furthermorellc.com) about their joint project with the DC Office of Planning. Tune in to hear more about their innovative project to link communities to their own unique sounds.
