SECTION 1: MAKING A PLACE
MODERATED BY GREGORY SHOLETTE

The term “placemaking” has swept grant- making organizations as well as city governments hoping to use the arts to make cities more vibrant. What are productive models to consider when thinking about the making of place through culture? What are its limitations?

SECTION 2: MY BROOKLYN
MODERATED BY RISË WILSON

 

In the contentious debate on development in New York City, no borough is featured more prominently in the stories of gentrification than Brooklyn. This section uses the borough as a case study to consider the specifics of resistance, placemaking, and overall use of culture in the transformation of a place many call home.
