Recovery from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has been slow for cities worldwide. Downtowns are struggling to gain workers and visitors, and to create a safe, vibrant place for the community to converge. Practical solutions to this scenario lie in the hands of the community. With a case study from Vancouver, Washington's Great River Arts Festival, this 75-minute session will envision what creative and inclusive placemaking can look like. The festival brings together artists, businesses, and property owners and inspires downtown revitalization. Join us for presentations, conversation, and a Q&A to learn more!
