Successful creative community development manifests when alliances between communities and artists/designers are reciprocal and balanced. One of the biggest challenges to the field is the difficulty in sustaining these alliances and its outcomes. In the past decade, one effort of the creative placemaking movement has been to overcome the temporary aspect of social practice. In the arts & culture realm, social practice is deeply bonded to ephemeral projects that leave communities dry once the project is over, the program is discontinued, or the funding ends. It is only recently that we have seen an effort to make these processes more interdisciplinary and permeable across sectors. As a result, there are more examples that use the arts and other creative processes as a catalyst to create work that transcends this realm; becoming non-profit organizations, changing policies, creating community centers, festivals, neighborhood associations, etc; ie. long-term transformations that impact communities culturally, socially and economically. This course offers a theoretical and practical background for students on how to develop sustainable creative community development across their own disciplines. Through lectures, case studies, field trips, guest-speakers and writing assignments, students will be given a tool kit to successfully make their practices sustainable. This course will prepare students to have the adequate mindset to use the tools given and prepare them for success while venturing into these processes; the next frontier of creative placemaking and art making itself.

This course counts as an elective course for the Graduate Minor in Creative Community Development.
