Building a Stronger Community Through Placemaking

Dec 11, 2015

Saint Luke’s Foundation in Cleveland, OH, describes placemaking as “the active process of shaping an environment to improve social interaction and quality of life.” Its four main steps are designing, planning, programming, and managing the public realm.

Nelson Beckford is the Senior Program Officer for A Strong Neighborhood, one of the foundation’s program areas. In this video, he explains their program strategy and gives examples of its impact. This excerpt is from a "Coffee and Conversation with a Grantmaker" program at Foundation Center Cleveland in September 2015.
