A series of white papers exploring The Kresge Foundation Arts & Culture Program’s transition to community Creative Placemaking grantmaker

Reflections, learnings and insights on Creative Placemaking are shared in this series of white papers from The Kresge Foundation’s Arts & Culture team in concert with partners from different fields and sectors. The goal is to help illuminate the foundation’s multi-faceted approach to grantmaking, share lessons learned, identify challenges and opportunities encountered, and encourage conversations in the field. The first paper, Kresge’s Arts & Culture Program, the First Decade, was posted in January, 2018, and subsequent papers will be posted throughout the year. Topics include:

  • Kresge’s journey to creative placemaking
  • Creative Placemaking on-the-ground impacts
  • Creative Placemaking field observations
  •  Catalyzing Culture and Community Through community development finance institutions (CDFIs)
  • Anchor strategies

The Kresge Foundation Arts & Culture Program team will share this work over the year with an eye toward sharing with peer grantmakers and practitioners in sectors working to fully integrate arts and culture with community development and urban planning practices.
