Culture as Catalyst: The Role of Art in Placemaking
How can culture become a driving force behind a neighbourhood’s social and urban renewal? How can a place steer clear from commercialising what makes it unique? And what can a city do to safeguard its artists in times of crisis? In this episode, Jen Hughes, a Senior Advisor at the National Endowment of Arts, explains how their Our Town grant is helping villages, towns and cities across the US revitalise their urban and rural spaces, before Roland Fisher-Vousden breaks down how his organisation SET are adapting vacant buildings in London to give local artists a lifeline.
