Creative Placemaking Case Study: Brookland-Edgewood

This case study on the Brookland-Edgewood neighborhood of Washington DC, illustrates how Creative Placemaking, the deliberate integration of arts and culture into comprehensive community development, can serve as a critical catalyst in forming equitable living and working solutions for all the social, economic, and racial constituencies of a neighborhood. When Brookland-Edgewood intentionally embedded arts and culture into its economic resurgence, the neighborhood succeeded in protecting its cultural identity, bridging social differences, and elevating the voices of existing residents.
