This report is a SIAP update for partners (The Reinvestment Fund, PolicyMap, and Philadelphia Office of Arts, Culture and Creative Economy) on CultureBlocks work undertaken from Dec 2011 to Dec 2012. SIAP/TRF research and data analyses underway included:
- a cross-sectional analysis of associations between cultural assets and social and community indicators by neighborhood;
- a time-series of the geography of cultural assets between 1997 and 2010, using SIAP’s historical database; and
- a Philadelphia livability/social inclusion index that links information on cultural assets with other community indices on neighborhood vitality and social wellbeing.
The report also includes: Appendix A--"Natural" Cultural Districts and Public Policy (Manuscript, June 2012); Appendix B--How does the composition of a cultural district influence its sustainability? (Working Paper, Nov 2012); Appendix C--Livability/social inclusion index data grid (Matrix, Nov 2012); Appendix D--Social inclusion in Philadelphia: A multidimensional approach (Powerpoint Presentation, Oct 2012);
Appendix E provides links to SIAP ArtPlace Blogs on Philadelphia's creative assets maps (Dec 2011 - Aug 2012) and Americans for the Arts blogs on the arts, culture and social wellbeing (May 2012).
