For Whom, By Whom

“For Whom, By Whom” is a series about how creative placemaking can expand opportunities for low-income people living in disinvested communities. Neighborhood improvements all too often spark additional development and attract the attention of profit-minded investors. So how do you place-make responsibly and equitably for the people who should benefit, in a manner that prevents displacement and gentrification? The hands-on work done in these communities provides a roadmap for how equitable placemaking can be replicated from city to city. Solutions could come to life in museums, small-business corridors, urban farms, bike trails, affordable housing complexes, and under highway overpasses, among other transformed spaces. This series is generously underwritten by the Kresge Foundation.
