Growing Place - At the Intersection of Art, Business and Community

Creative placemaking is a hot topic in funding and planning circles that brings artists, designers, planners, businesses and community together to energize place. Whether that framework is fully embraced, the work is happening in many different sectors of our city.  Hearing from the perspective of the architect, arts organization, developer and community, the session will pose some examples of how art, design, and community come together toward building a more vibrant Houston.
