Placemaking. What do you know about it?

Calling all revitalization leaders: Help us identify creative placemaking efforts across the country!

We are conducting a national survey to better understand how communities are using arts and culture to transform vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties into community assets. Are you involved with a creative placemaking effort, or know of one happening in your community? Please share it with us by taking our survey – your community could be featured in a national publication!

The survey closes on February 20 – please feel free to share! Your input will ultimately help to shape strategies and policies used by public, private, and community leaders.: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZV3TZ9Z

This past weekend's Fete Ghede Ride & Ancestor Celebration was great hit! Thank you for those who showed up to support and enjoy!

A special thank you to Muneer Bahauddeen, Al Patterson and Family, Ammar Nsoroma, Amaranth Bakery, OnFyah's drummers and dancers, and other friends and family for bringing a food for everyone.

Fete Ghede is the Haitian Vodou Celebration honoring death, life & rebirth that corresponds to All Saints Day. It is a time to acknowledge the Ancestors through feasts and festivities.

Red Bike & Green-Milwaukee ended its season paying tribute to those who have gone before, those yet living, and those yet to be born. They rode throughout the neighborhood visiting memorials and paying tribute with bundles of flowers.

This event was sponsored by the Washington Park Partners Arts & Cultures Committee & the Washington Park NID and hosted by Red Bike & Green-Milwaukee.
