Arts, Culture and Transportation: A Creative Placemaking Field Scan

Commissioned by ArtPlace American and produced by Transportation for America’s Arts & Culture team, this report identifies ways that cities can weave arts and culture into transportation planning efforts for stronger projects. The field scan includes case studies showing how creative placemaking can contribute to the success of transportation and mobility projects in seven ways:

  1. “Generating creative solutions for entrenched transportation problems
  2. Making streets safer for all users
  3. Organizing transportation advocates
  4. Engaging multiple stakeholders for an inclusive process
  5. Fostering local ownership
  6. Alleviating the disruptive effects of construction
  7. Healing wounds and divisions”
