Arts and culture are proving to be a "secret superpower" that drives new opportunities into low-income places and lifts the people who live there. Part of that is about replacing blighted buildings with arts-related businesses, housing and cultural attractions. And, part of it is about the economic boost and jobs that follow. But, as LISC's Erik Takeshita points out in his latest installment about creative placemaking, a critical piece is the strong sense of shared culture that is at work. Creative placemaking builds social capital in ways that help everyone in the neighborhood—artist or not—live better. It is a powerful tool for growth.
