The Validating Arts and Livability Indicators (VALI) Study: Results and Recommendations

Apr 1, 2014

This report presents the findings of an effort undertaken by the Urban Institute to validate a set of candidate indicators for creative placemaking initiatives. Creative placemaking is described as a process or endeavor in which “partners from public, private, non-profit and community sectors strategically shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, city or region around arts and cultural activities.”

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) promotes creative placemaking with their flagship Our Town initiative, which has provided grants to nearly 200 communities across the United States since 2011.
