    Join us to explore the business case for including art in development with Professor Matthew Kwatinetz!

    Learn how creative placemaking contributes to the ROI on a real estate development project and delivers benefits to all stakeholders, including developers and partners, government, and the community.  

    We will discuss all of the types of art in the context of real estate including Public Art, Creator Spaces (for making art), Exhibition Spaces (for presenting art), Living Space, Work/Live Space, organizational homes and institutions and more. Then we will learn about how projects get planned, funded, built and operated successfully over long term periods including sharing a sample capital stack for a typical real estate project!

    Special thanks to bo-mar for sponsoring this event!
