ArtPlace America analyzes creative placemaking in new study

ArtPlace America has published a study assessing the strengths and needs of the creative placemaking sector. The report was created in partnership with Arizona State University, the Kresge Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, conducted by The Bridgespan Group. Findings were based on a series of stakeholder interviews and field surveys to draw a "comprehensive and cohesive map” for the future of creative placemaking.
