Creative Placemaking program
Semaine de la Francophonie Creative Placemaking returns to Washington, 5:30 p.m., Thursday at the Historic Washington Art Gallery for the purpose of project work, begun in 2018.
On Thursday, a one hour presentation reintroduces Creative Placemaking practices that are proven to result in community betterment and discusses how a francophone component can be incorporated. The evening concludes with an invite to a “high-level,” two-to-three-hour workshop, when trainers George Marks and Paula Ohlmeyer assist participants with setting up strategies for proposed arts/culture focused “Gardens” and/or “Baskets” projects. Day, time and location for that “high-level” workshop will be decided by those present on Thursday.
All interested persons are invited to attend and become part of the growth of this first Washington SFCP project.
The Semaine de la Francophonie Creative Placemaking Summit is a regional endeavor by which an understanding of Creative Placemaking is presented for the purpose of cultural economy development that honors Louisiana French identity. Resulting is an arts/culture centered project that partners with education, government, nonprofit and private businesses.
The SFCP Summit is an initiative of NUNU Arts and Culture Collective in Arnaudville, and works in partnership with the Saint Luc French Immersion and Cultural Campus, CODOFIL and the Lafayette International Center.
