Creative CityMaking Minneapolis Forum
June 3-4, 2016

Community members, government officials, arts organizations, artists and organizers interested in exploring the intersection of arts, community development, government, equity and innovation gathered for a series of workshops and panel discussions examining how artists are working in City government including a closer look at Creative CityMaking Minneapolis. Guests heard from artists and City teams about their work in 2015-2016 and reflected on the work with national leaders including Roberto Bedoya, author of “Creative Placemaking and the Politics of Belonging and Dis-Belonging,” who has consistently supported arts-based civic engagement projects and advocated for expanded definitions of inclusion and belonging throughout his career.

Creative CityMaking Minneapolis (CCM) is a multi-year, arts-based innovation initiative within Minneapolis City government designed to advance City priorities through in-depth collaborations between City departments and highly skilled community artists. Creative CityMaking Minneapolis is a leading-edge program stewarded by Intermedia Arts, the region’s premier multidisciplinary, multicultural arts center, and The Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy program at the City of Minneapolis.
