Welcome Building CAPACD convention attendees!
This expo booth is dedicated to the AAPI Creative Placemaking Learning Circle, an initiative of National CAPACD that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kresge Foundation, NeighborWorks America and with in-kind support from ArtPlace America. This initiative was conceived in partnership with Asian Economic Development Association, Chinatown Community Development Center, Hawai'i Alliance for Community Based Economic Development, Little Tokyo Service Center, and Local Initiatives Support Corporation.
The Learning Circle engages over 20 organizations from across the country that center culture as a strategy for advancing equitable development in AAPI communities. Participants have thus far convened in Hilo, Hawai'i and San Francisco, CA, with one more convening schedule for St. Paul, Minnesota in 2021 (check out our photo gallery below). Together, these organizations share their ideas and experiences toward improving their own practice, while also helping to elevate awareness within the creative placemaking field of the unique strategies and values that drive creative placemaking in AAPI communities across the country.
Our Learning Circle has compiled a Vision, Values, and Practice document, which outlines how and why we do what we do, and seeks to articulate the ways in which creative placemaking is different in the AAPI community development context. Click on the link below to check out that document - and leave your comments in the chat box below. We would love your feedback as we further refine this document.
If you are interested in learning more about this Learning Circle, please leave a message in the chat box, and we will be sure to contact you after the Building CAPACD Convention concludes.
Thank you for visiting!
