Municipalities and non-profits around the world construct museums, theaters, libraries, parks, and cultural districts with the hopes of encouraging investment in underdeveloped urban areas, improving the quality of life for residents, and attracting tourist dollars.
In this first program of the Culture as Catalyst: Past, Present, Future series, panelists from across the U.S. share how their cultural facilities and civic spaces respond to the needs of the community.
