Artscape Partners with UBC to Offer Course in Creative Placemaking
This fall, Artscape is partnering with the University of British Columbia to offer an online course in Creative Placemaking, the practice of leveraging arts, culture and creativity to drive community growth and transformation. The course is authored and instructed by Artscape’s Pru Robey, Director Knowledge Exchange, Research and Development.
Over ten weeks, students will acquire the knowledge, skills and inspiration required to investigate, develop and implement creative placemaking projects in their community. The course will explore a range of creative placemaking strategies, including: the development of cultural districts and creative industry clusters; public art; cultural flagship development and artists’ space projects; and festivals and events. This course is offered as part of the Certificate in Cultural Planning in UBC’s Continuing Studies Department and is accessible worldwide as it will be delivered in an online format.
