Hear how free concerts transformed two communities in Texas and Nevada. We had a conversation with Sharon Yazowski, Executive Director of the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation; Patti Diou of the Levitt Pavilion in Arlington, TX, and Gina Lopez-Hill of the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City, NV. This episode touches on the power of getting the community together over free, outdoor concerts. Our guests give their programs credit for introducing couples who later got married, helping local employers retain talented employees, and helping neighbors meet and bond over music. The recording took place during the 2019 Pacific Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit in Los Angeles, which was co-produced by the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation, The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking and ArtPlace America.
