Artist as Developer, Transforming Places Through Social Infrastructure
This panel discussion will showcase alternative, arts-based models of development and urbanization in rust belt cities. We will demonstrate the value of artists and creatives through social infrastructure and community transformation. We will explore case studies, typologies, strategies, and implementation. This collective work will provide an educational framework for implementing development strategies, promoting land ownership for local/small scale entrepreneurs related to creative disciplines and the arts. Our hope is to inspire more artists and designers to apply these strategies, work with local zoning ordinances to advocate for policy change, and raise awareness of the importance of preserving artist ownership over both intellectual and physical land property

Our panelists include:

Alicia George, co-founder of The Artist Village and owner of Motor City Java House
Jim Walker and Shauta Marsh, co-founders of Big Car Collective
Tammy Black, President of Manistique Treehouse Community Center

Moderators include Laura Walker and Michael Styczynski of Other Work
