Re-Imagining Our Community: Cultural Alliance Annual Meeting
Please note, this event has expired.
Join us for our annual meeting featuring Keynote Speaker, Executive Director Jamie Bennett of Artplace America.
On Tuesday, October 25th at 5:30pm at the Agricultural and Industrial Museum, The Cultural Alliance invites you to re-imagine York with us.
What if the conversation around arts in our community was not about what the arts need (money), but about what the arts provide?
What if the key to a sustainable, stable York is not something we need to create, but is something we’ve always had-artists?
What if the arts are not an add-on or addition to our redevelopment, what if they were the starting point?
Join us for our annual meeting featuring Keynote Speaker, Executive Director Jamie Bennett of Artplace America, as we discuss the impact of redevelopment programs that engage the arts in an effort to shape the social, physical, and economic future of given communities – known as creative place making.
In practice, this means having arts and culture represented alongside sectors like housing and transportation – with each sector recognized as part of any healthy community; as requiring planning and investment from its community; and as having a responsibility to contribute to its community’s overall future. To date, Artplace America has invested $56.8 million through 189 creative place-making grants in communities of all sizes across the United States.
Come and re-imagine what creative place making can do here in York! The event is free, but space is limited.
