I recently presented and moderated a panel for Art Place Summit 2016 The conversation was focused around craft and culinary as place making models. I had the pleasure of working with Deacon Stone of Coalfield Development Corp and Reclaim Appalachia who is doing absolutely amazing work in West Virginia Appalachia country and with Nancy Halpern Ibrahim of the Esperanza Community Development Corp and Mercado La Paloma, she is an amazing spirit doing brilliant work in South Central Los Angeles.
Craft and food along with Culture and Community creates a ripe environment for celebration. With the attendees we create cross community celebrations and had great discussions!!
