Placemaking Audits, Funding, and Participating Organizations. 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.

Placemaking Audits, Funding, and Participating Organizations

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).

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.”

Community Development INVESTMENT REVIEW: 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. Problem loading page.

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.

A New Approach to Funding Social Enterprises

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. BUSIForum2014Summary. 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.

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.

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.

USASBE 2016, Entrepreneurship Everywhere? 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.
