History of creative placemaking in the United States
The term ‘creative placemaking’ was coined only six years ago, but it has been happening in various forms in the US since at least the late 19th century. This webinar will explore the earliest work in creative placemaking in America. Participants will learn about the pioneering work of Charles Mulford Robinson, Edgar Lee Hewett and others, and discover how placemaking through arts and culture has evolved over more than a century.
