Monday, May 22nd – Creative Placemaking in Iowa: The concept of creative placemaking has been around for years, but a small group brought it front and center to Iowa. The Gazette welcomes back Zach Mannheimer, who first brought the topic of Creative Placemaking to the Iowa Ideas audience in 2017. What is creative placemaking, and how has Iowa embraced the work?
Tuesday, May 23rd – Ingredients for Creating place: What are the unique pieces that define a thriving community? Hear from successful placemaking initiatives that built up their assets to make their geographic mark.
Wednesday, May 24th – Local Buy In: Building trust and encouraging partnerships from idea to launch. How does local support (or lack of) impact success of a placemaking initiative? How does a community sort through varying interests and interpretations of assets?
Thursday, May 25th – The Next Level: How do small wins in placemaking determine they are ready to become a destination? How does a community apply a concept that has gained local support and apply it as part of economic development strategy?
