This lightning panel session will address the concept of placemaking and the role art librarians have taken in the urban revitalization of public spaces Placemaking is a people-centered, multi-faceted approach to planning, designing, and managing public spaces to fit the needs and aspirations of the communities who work, live, and play in these spaces. Panelists will discuss innovative projects which have acted as a catalyst for urban regeneration. Whether grassroots or institutionally-based, panelists will address artistic communities’ intervention in urban spaces, how these artistic communities are initiated, maintained, promoted and disseminated, and collaborative initiatives with external constituents. Through the panel presentations and subsequent roundtable discussion, the ARLISN/A membership is invited to a larger discussion of the role art librarians and visual resources professionals play in the process of urban revitalization. This panel was organized by the Urban & Regional Planning Special Interest Group.
