UC Placemaking is a multi-campus initiative that seeks to enrich the connection between people and place through the arts and design. On November 7th faculty and students will share Placemaking Initiative being development with UC Santa Cruz with support from the California Art + Design Consortium and OpenLab Collaborative Research Center.
The University of California is home to both faculty and students who are at the forefront of placemaking in communities throughout the state and across the globe. Their work is core to UC’s foundational public research mission as a land grant institution and its commitment to scholarship that directly serves the interests of California’s diverse publics.
This free talk is open to all and will be followed by refreshments. Generous support has been provided by the Art Department, the Arts Division, and The University of California.
Art Professor Jennifer Parker is the led Pi at UCSC spearheading and directing placemaking opportunities with faculty and students across campus. Please visit our webpage for more details about individual projects:
