Transit: Creative Placemaking in Baltimore

Transit: Creative Placemaking in Baltimore

The project "Transit: Creative placemaking in Baltimore" is a cooperation project between the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA), European Union National Cultural Institutes (EUNIC) and EUNIC Washington D.C.

In creative placemaking, partners from public, private, non-profit, and community sectors strategically shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, city, or region around arts and cultural activities. Creative placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, improves local business viability and public safety, and brings diverse people together to celebrate, inspire, and be inspired.
