Riverworks in collaboration with artists of all mediums, stakeholders, partners and residents are working together to create a comprehensive art guide. This guide will steer creative placemaking projects for the Harambee and Riverwest neighborhoods and beyond.

What is an Art Guide?

Why an Art Guide?

As Riverworks continues community development in Harambee, Riverwest and along the Beerline Trail it is important to build a best practices guide for working with artists and residents. This guide will ensure community voices are being heard and  creative placemaking projects are reflective of the vibrant communities we serve.  

What is creative placemaking?

Creative Placemaking uses arts, culture and space to bring economic development to the community. We work with community residents, businesses and other stakeholders to build power within the community through the utilization of public spaces. Harnessing art and culture we build bridges across generations, cultures, ethnicities and neighborhoods. We seek to foster social cohesion through collaborations. 

What is the project timeline?

Creating an comprehensive guide for art and creative placemaking projects in Harambee and Riverwest is no small feat and we need your help to create something intentional and impactful. As we continue to build our Art Guide Committee we will start facilitation events in the Fall of 2022. Through workshops and community input sessions our goal is to release this comprehensive documents for the community in the spring of 2023.
