Creativity & Culture Drive Equitable Brownfield Redevelopment
How can communities work with developers to creatively incorporate art and culture into brownfield redevelopment projects? Learn ways to creatively plan for locally-supported reuse options on brownfield sites that will produce culturally appropriate environmental, economic and social benefits for your community. Hear from experienced economic strategists, public agencies, developers and community representatives as they discuss critical elements of equity-based brownfield and infill development including:
- Envisioning end uses and placemaking that integrate cultural values, environmental justice and economic equity into mixed use development;
- Exploring creative local business activities as adaptive reuse and infill strategies;
- Responding to the decline of big-box retail and office demand, in the e-commerce, remote work-oriented economy;
- Encouraging community-developer interactions.
Participants will walk away with an expanded appreciation and guidance on incorporating equity, culture and artist engagement into public, private or non-profit development of brownfield sites, and gain a clear understanding of some steps and best practices involved.
