Untitled. Functions of Art in Culture. Assessment Exec. How Arts and Cultural Strategies Create, Reinforce, and Enhance Sense of Place. Keypoints #1: Understanding Community Context #2: Reinforcing Sense of Place: Celebrating Community Character #3: Local Implementation Framework #4: Arts and Cultural Programming This brief explores how arts and culture strategies can be used to understand community context, celebrate community character, and ultimately create, reinforce, or enhance sense of place. Artistic and cultural inventories allow a community to begin to understand the historic, cultural, economic, and social context of a community — an essential foundation for developing and building sen: e of place. A creative community vision can continuously evolve and embrace new ideas while balancing the inherent conflicting nature of past, present, and future community values and culture.

Preserving and enhancing the local identity, uniqueness, and arts and culture assets of a community require that local decision making, planning processes, policies, and regulations reflect and support community character.

Silke Hase. About Silke Hase Born near Hamburg, Germany Silke now lives in New England. Silke's work has been described as "poetry in black & white". In her photographs of landscapes and people, she expresses stories, … Read Morefeelings and dreams; capturing the spirit of a place to make the viewer feel positive and curious. Her photographs have a signature dreamlike quality that she accomplishes by combining a cheap plastic camera with the 'zone system' (a photographic technique co-invented and perfected by legend Ansel Adams) As much as Silke appreciates a good color photograph, she believes that black and white adds a mystical or mysterious quality to her photographs that color would take away.

Less Education: Silke first studied photography at high school in Wedel-Holstein, Germany. Much of her education is self taught during travel in Europe, Egypt, South America and the US, where she captured landscapes … Read Moreand the faces of the cultures she visited. RECORDING COURSES - Oak Grove Recording. Learn to be a producer or engineer or how to make your own recordings at home! SOME FOLKS want to be an audio engineer and learn to make records and CDs. Some want to produce and get involved with the songs and arrangements. Others want to kick up their knowledge a few notches, so they can operate their own equipment at home in a more productive manner or even open their own studios. All our courses are one-on-one — no crowding around the console in a class of ten or twenty students. We cover every aspect of audio engineering and production, including consoles, patchbays, digital and analog recording, microphones and miking techniques, frequency-dynamic and time-based processing, composition and arranging, as well as MIDI, synths, sampling, and drum modules.

We also go “off the books” quite a bit to give you invaluable insider tips and shortcuts. When you complete one of our courses, you’re ready to enter the industry as a professional. :: CCI :: Staff & Board :: Angie Kim angie [AT] President and CEO Lauren lauren [AT] Managing Director Jayna jayna [AT] Program Director, Bay Area Ian ian [AT] Programs AssistantBay Area Ramona Pilar ramona [AT] Program Manager Katie info [AT] Bookkeeper Lorna Lathram, Chair BioPrincipal, Lathram Consulting Sally Jo Fifer, Vice-Chair BioPresident and CEO,Independent Television Service (ITVS) Edgar Hirst, Secretary/Treasurer Bio Eleanor Academia Recording Artist/Producer, Black Swan Records Founder, World Kulintang Institute James C.

Placemaking Audits, Funding, and Participating Organizations | Metropolitan Area Planning Council. Audits are intended to be used as tools to evaluate how well an area is performing as a place and to identify opportunities to enhance them in the future. By evaluating the quality of a place and identifying opportunities for improvement, audits can help determine how to best implement a placemaking project.

The following are excellent examples of audits: "A Guide to Neighborhood Placemaking in Chicago" and "Placemaking Chicago":While specifically targeted towards Chicago, these guides provide checklists and step-by-step instructions for managing and coordinating placemaking projects (prepared by the Metropolitan Planning Council and the Project for Public Spaces).

"Place Focus":An Australian website with checklists and a link to Placecheck, a method of observing a place and determining how to make it better. " There are a number of funding opportunities in addition to organizations currently engaged in placemaking activities. For arts-oriented placemaking projects: Town Line Luxury Lanes, The Luxury Boxx Sports Bar, MIXX 360 Nightlife.

Community Development INVESTMENT REVIEW: Creative Placemaking. While spending time here at the San Francisco Federal Reserve as a visiting scholar, Laura Callanan introduced us to a hidden world of practitioners transforming their communities through the arts—the world of “creative placemaking.” Creative placemakers use the arts to “activate” places: storefronts, trails, abandoned railways, town centers, and main streets.

As Jamie Bennett, executive director of ArtPlace America, writes in this issue: “In creative placemaking, ‘creative’ is an adverb describing the making, not an adjective describing the place. Successful creative placemaking is not be quantified by how many new arts centers, galleries, or cultural districts are built. Rather, its success is measured in the ways artists, formal and informal arts spaces, and creative interventions contribute toward community outcomes.” Laura’s introduction to this new world got me thinking about the world that I usually occupy: community development.

Table of Content Articles on Creative Placemaking: Problem loading page. Boston, MA. Started during the summer of 2009 in Boston, the founding chapter of the Awesome Foundation is all about micro-grants for maximum awesome. The definition of "Awesome" is left open ended on purpose and we convene ISO that intanglible combination of impact, surprise and joy. Monthly meetings result in awarding two $1,000 grants. Fellowship recipients are posted to the gallery at the top of the page so check back to see who is getting the ca$h. Realizing that there's more awesome out there than money in our pockets, we host local office hours in Boston so that we get to meet you (yes, you!)

Executive Summary Reprint: R1201K An increasing number of social entrepreneurs and investors are realizing that social enterprises of all sorts, including many organizations regarded as charitable nonprofits, can generate returns acceptable to the financial markets. The key is to view the funding of social enterprises as a problem of financial structuring. If they treat charitable donations as a form of capital that seeks social, not financial, returns, organizations can then tap traditional sources of funding: venture capital firms, banks, mutual funds, bonds, and so on.

And with access to these sources, they can make use of all the tools for transferring risk and return, allowing them to free up capital and grow. For this to succeed, the social enterprise sector will need to create greater precision and transparency around measuring and reporting social outcomes, and policy makers must build the necessary market infrastructure and legal frameworks. The Businesses of Blended Returns. BUSIForum2014Summary. Creative Economy | Exploring Our Town. By building up the local economy, whether it is through creating pop-ups shops in Mount Rainer, MD, creating an artist training incubator in Fort Collins, fostering the tourist economy in Reedsburg, WI, creating a new culture of innovative business signage in Covington, KY, connecting the design community to the innovation economy efforts of a city in Boston, or connecting artists and farmers to jointly grow a local economy in Montgomery, NY, Our Town creative economy projects emerge from strategic alliances between the arts and design and business communities.

As hybrid projects, leaders often approached the subject of community engagement and project communications through the lens of a business perspective. In Boston, the project managers worked to get the local design community to connect to other business development sectors, especially the entrepreneural support systems that were focusing their energy on the city's new Innovation District. Calvert Forum — Research — Publications. CalvertForum SummaryReport. Arts Incubators: 47 and Counting | Creative Infrastructure.

Arts Incubators: 47 and Counting Having recently completed a pilot study of university-based arts incubators and their evaluation tools, my attention turned to the larger question of arts incubators nationally. What are the primary activities of arts incubators and what business and organizational structures are best suited to achieve an incubator’s goals? How do they measure their success? Before I could address these larger questions, I needed a national inventory of arts incubators, activities, and business forms. In the interest of open access and the knowledge commons, I’ll share some of the raw data here, with the formal analysis and a typology of forms forthcoming at the STP+A (Social Theory, Politics, and Arts) conference and, hopefully, subsequent publication, following peer review.

And now, the real work can begin. [Update: My article, “Arts Incubators: A Typology” is published in Journal of Arts Management, Law and Society 44(3), 169-180.] Like this: Like Loading... How the Arts and Culture Sector Catalyzes Economic Vitality. Keypoints Competition, definition, attraction, integration, and continued development are all pivotal aims for economic development professionals. Traditional outcomes of economic development in planning include job creation, increased tax revenues, increased property values, increased retail activity, and more sustained economic vitality. These goals are often pursued through programs such as workforce development, recruitment, amenity packages for firms, local property investment, and policies that support business. When combined with creative approaches, these traditional programs can create a richer context for economic development.

Economic development approaches that integrate arts and culture are usually combinations of facility-centric, people-oriented, and program-based approaches.

Arizona Arts Entrepreneur Toolkit | School of Film, Dance and Theatre | Herberger Institute. Herberger Institute Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Programs. Biennial Symposium on Entrepreneurship in the Arts 2014-2015 4th Biennial Pave Symposium on Entrepreneurship and the Arts:Creativity and New Venture Creation in the Arts May 8-9, 2015 Arizona State University’s 4th Biennial Pave Symposium on Entrepreneurship and the Arts in collaboration with the UW-Madison Bolz Center for Arts Administration presents a national symposium on creativity and new venture creation in the arts.

Participants will explore the processes, outcomes, and impacts of new venture creation in the arts through hands-on workshops, speakers, pitch sessions and research presentations. Framed by an interactive workshop on creativity led by Elizabeth Long-Lingo and anchored by keynote speeches by Ruby Lerner, CEO of Creative Capital, and Steven J. Tepper, Dean of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, the symposium will also include concurrent sessions on theory, practice and pedagogy for arts entrepreneurship, creativity, and new venture creation in the arts.

USASBE 2016, Entrepreneurship Everywhere? | Creative Infrastructure. I recently attended my fourth USASBE conference in the last seven years. (USASBE = United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship.) Despite the fact that USASBE awarded the Pave Program in Arts Entrepreneurship with its Excellence in Entrepreneurship Education Specialty Program Award last year, I always feel a bit like a fish out of water at this conference.

About 80% of the attendees are entrepreneurship faculty from business schools. Nevertheless, there is a very active Arts Entrepreneurship special interest group (SIG). A high point of the conference was a tour of some of San Diego’s infrastructure for arts and culture entrepreneurial activity organized by the SIG. Led by San Diego State’s Donna Conaty, we toured the recently refurbished Naval Training Center Arts District, which includes, among other facilities, dance spaces shared by three of the city’s dance companies and a museum of comic book art. Ties have been made into arts and culture spaces. Like this: f458e7 7ee485f9cebc416f9c1d4ec09ddc9a30. f458e7 302351dbd08e41c597d94906ae237c53. Calvert Forum — Projects.
