Catch up with the launch webinar for Arts, Culture and Transportation: A Creative Placemaking Field Scan

Catch up with the launch webinar for Arts, Culture and Transportation: A Creative Placemaking Field Scan, our recently released national examination of creative placemaking in the transportation planning process. 

We spent the month of September talking about arts and culture and explaining how they can help contribute to producing better transportation projects that more fully serve communities. It all culminated with the launch of this new field scan that explores seven of the most pressing challenges facing the transportation sector today, identifies how arts and culture contribute to solutions, and offers case studies from diverse community contexts.

Last Friday, we held a terrific discussion about the report with a handful of experts, including some of the people behind the inspiring story of El Paso’s Transnational Trolley. Catch up with the full recording of last week’s session here:

Transportation systems can and should be a powerful tool to help people access opportunity, drive economic development, improve health and safety, and build the civic and social capital that bind communities together. And when artists team up with transportation professionals at a project’s outset, their collaboration can lead to new, creative, and more comprehensive solutions to today’s transportation challenges. This process known as creative placemaking is happening in communities across the country and transportation professionals are eager to know, what are the key trends and best practices?
