Measuring the Outcomes of Creative Placemaking (May 2014)


This talk was delivered by Mark Stern at the “Transatlantic Symposium: The Role of Artists & the Arts in Urban Resilience,” held in Baltimore, MD, May 30-31, 2014, a two-day convening of artists, curators, and public administrators from the U.S. and nine European countries. The presentation addressed SIAP’s concern (with reference to blogger Ian David Moss) that “creative placemaking has (several) outcomes problems.”

The symposium—part of a project called Transit: Creative Placemaking in Baltimore—was hosted by the Goethe-Institut and the European Network of Independent Cultural Institutes (EUNIC) in Washington, D.C. and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts (BOPA).
