PlacemakingCHA.org is back online, and the public is invited to share what’s going on in the community. Originally the website home of the 3rd International Placemaking Week, PlacemakingCHA.org, has revived to connect people and organizations across the greater Chattanooga region to practices that cultivate a sense of place. Placemaking CHA shares stories and resources to inspire engagement, vibrancy, and growth from within communities (in a pandemic and beyond).
Building on the success of International Placemaking Week in downtown Chattanooga last October, Placemaking CHA invites artists, business owners, civic leaders, and residents to share stories about engaging their communities through public spaces, the arts, culture, and creativity.
Submissions could address questions such as: What has your community done to create public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well being in the greater Chattanooga region? How is your community healing people in trying times through arts, culture, and placemaking? Ideas for content features could range from established programs to coping with COVID-19 through the arts, from temporary installations to permanent infrastructure improvements.
