Sit on the porch with The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking and three guests from Indianapolis, collaborators who are engaging community theater, neighbors, and small business owners to imagine a better future. The guests are Moriah Miller of the Harrison Center, Keesha Dixon of Asante Children's Theatre, and Shirley Webster, a longtime resident and community organizer. The three were instructors at the 2019 Midwest Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit in Cincinnati in October. They taught a session on engaging theater to address neighborhood change and cultural gentrification. Themes include gentrification, community theater, improvisation, honoring and integrating elderly residents, cultural festivals to encourage dialogue around difficult topics and more. The event is called PreEnact Indy. Learn more by watching this video:
