Visioning for Downtown Phoenix

“Successful creative placemaking places artists and art at the center of planning, execution and activity.” – ArtPlace America


Creative placemaking has become a focus across the nation for building better and healthier communities with concentrated investment in arts and culture. Through advocacy of local artists, art exhibitions, small businesses, along with the significant support of community partners and grant investments,  Roosevelt Row CDC has been instrumental in leveraging creative placemaking in downtown Phoenix. New and reoccurring visitors continue to fuel this ongoing process of placemaking and come to experience this dynamic, downtown urban scene.

This year, we celebrate our collaborative community, the progressive journey we have made and what we will create together. Throughout 2014 and beyond, we will continue to live out our vision and achieve strategic goals through the power of partnership and downtown involvement.  Through collectively enhancing our arts district, let us boldly explore what is possible in downtown Phoenix.  Be part of the growth and celebration!
