Postponed: What is Creative Placemaking? And Do Universities Have a Role to Play in It?

This event is postponed until further notice.

Join us for our Year of Creativity symposium. 

Shoshanah B. D. Goldberg-Miller, PhD is Assistant Professor specializing in arts administration and policy in the Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy at The Ohio State University. Christiane Leach is the Artist Relations Coordinator at the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council. Oli Mould is Lecturer in Human Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London. Henry Reese is Co-Founder of City of Asylum Pittsburgh and President of its Board of Directors. Until recently, janera solomon was Executive Director of the Kelly Strayhorn Theater. David Wilson is Professor of Geography and Geographic Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

During the Year of Creativity at the University of Pittsburgh, creative placemaking has become an important terrain of debate. “Creative placemaking” is a phrase taken up in recent years to talk about the role of the arts and creativity in contributing to flourishing, equitable, and just communities. This one-day symposium asks what forms creative placemaking can take and whether universities have a role to play. It features the voices of Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller, Christiane Leach, Oli Mould, Henry Reese, janera solomon, and David Wilson.

The lead sponsor for this event is the Year of Creativity.

Tuesday, April 14 at 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
