Placemaking - Beyond Mississippi’s Creative & Cultural Economy

Thursday, February 22, 2018
Community Arts Center - MGCCC Perkinston

Now in our fourth year, we are looking at the role of Placemaking - a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design  and management of public spaces.  Placemaking capitalizes on local assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote peoples health, happiness, and well being. Join us as we discuss this important topic and learn what is on the horizon for Mississippi's Creative and Cultural Economy.

Our speakers include:

Malcolm White, MS Arts Commission Director

Dr. Stuart Rockoff, MS Humanities Council Director


Event Activities  |  Help us strengthen Mississippi's Creative Economy!

The day-long “Building Creative Economy Assets” program is being hosted at the Community Arts Center on the Perkinston Campus of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

We have an outstanding agenda for the day, speakers from across the state will share information on a variety of resources available to small communities. Representatives from MS Arts Commission, MS Main Street Assoc. and others will be in attendance.
