Dodge Foundation’s President writes about Creative Placemaking

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s president, Chris Daggett recently wrote this about creative placemaking in the state:

Arts can bring a community many benefits, from fostering local pride to creating opportunities for recreation or even mitigating cultural or racial tensions.

But the arts can also serve as a powerful economic engine, bringing needed jobs and dollars into communities.

 

We agree, and we’re glad to support this important work in New Jersey!
