Conversation on creative placemaking

This week we will be featuring conversations with leaders working in communities. Nicolle Bennett, is currently working with an arts education and advocacy organization called Feel the Music! She is developing a technology platform for artists, community-based organizations and policymakers to connect in a more meaningful way. Sifiso Maposa is a social entrepreneur working in the culture and creative industries. Based in Southern Africa, she is creating a digital platform that connects the creative industries of Africa to each other and to global networks. 

Welcome to our conversation on the arts, community, placemaking and how our ideas on these topics, many of which overlap, have culminated into our respective projects that are seeking to create networks or “places” that advocate for the arts and artists. We each thought about and wrote out our initial responses separately, then came together to react and have a dialogue. We welcome additional comments!
