Designers, artists and culture bearers are unique and often under-activated assets in communities. At Arizona State University, arts-based equitable community work — also known as creative placemaking and creative placekeeping--is a central thread of inquiry and action. At ASU, The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions play a critical role in testing and advancing how we prepare a wide range of people working in neighborhoods and policy realms for the challenges facing our communities. In our Creativity and Place podcast series, Herberger Institute and Watts Professor Maria Rosario Jackson converses with field leaders and scholars to explore key questions and issues.
