Topic: Creative Placemaking Projects
Thursday, Jan. 28th @ 7PM

In 2021, Creative Suitland will be doing our part in improving and beautifying our community. We are launching our new initiative Empty Space, Creative Places, a series of projects designed increase visibility, safety, and commerce in the Greater Suitland area.

What is ‘Creative Placemaking’? According to our supporting agent, National Endowment for the Arts, creative placemaking is

“when artists, arts organizations, and community development practitioners deliberately integrate arts and culture into community revitalization work. [It]  supports local efforts to enhance quality of life and opportunity for existing residents, increase creative activity, and create a distinct sense of place.” 

In a nutshell, your input is necessary in making our plans true and authentic to the culture and heritage of Suitland.
