Public art and community recovery

kerrygrace-2014 Uncategorized

When recently in Christchurch, NZ I was moved and inspired by the public art.  I had to learn more about how the artworks contributed to the community recovery process after the 2011 Earthquake.

Deborah McCormick, Founder and Director of SCAPE Public Art kindly joined me for an interview where I learned not only about the role of public art in the realm of recovery, but also about considering ways to engage government and business to support and get involved in the arts.  Some really inspiring strategies were highlighted in the interview.
