Innovation Breakfast: Public Art and Placemaking
September 13 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
Initiatives like the Department of Play in Boston have pioneered placemaking through public art. Temporary installations engage residents, encourage interaction, and grow community. Leaders across America now recognize the power of public art to break down cultural barriers and advance their missions in housing, workforce, transportation, health, and the environment
So what are we waiting for? It’s time to PLAY! Join us for a fun, interactive discussion of how we can co-create more vibrant public spaces that engage, interact, and transform the region.
The keynote speaker is Katarzyna Balug,Co-founder, Department of Play. Kate is a co-founder of Department of Play, a lost city department that examines play as a powerful form of collaboration between residents and urban systems. Department of Play received a 2015 ArtPlace America grant for the creation of momentary public fictions in liminal spaces between Boston neighborhoods.
