Shaping Our Communities, Transforming With Local Ideas:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
In my research for my book in progress Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life one key idea becomes clearer by the day–the really important and lasting changes in personal and community development bubble up from within the individual or community. They emerge in the context of everyday life and action. Nowhere is this more important than in the transforming of communities. The development of Gate City Arts in Holyoke, Massachusetts is an inspiring example of how people make their communities better.
“Focusing on creation and community development, Gateway City Arts has become the cultural center of Holyoke.”
