Creative Placemaking in Rural Places

With the early 2019 release of "Rural Prosperity Through the Arts & Creative Sector" and the 2019 Rural Generation Summit, the creative placemaking world is turning its attention to arts and culture-driven economic and community development in less-populated areas. Bob Reeder, Program Director of Rural LISC, explains why it's important for people in the field to learn the 'languages' spoken in other sectors, and how that knowledge can result in more productive creative placemaking.  We interviewed him at the 2019 ArtPlace Summit in Jackson, MS, which was immediately followed by the Rural Generation Summit, also in Jackson. He served on the advisory committee for the Rural Generation Summit.
