“The journalist today needs to have more than reporting and editing skills. From blogs to video production, the media landscape demands that journalists be prepared to present stories in print and cyberspace.” ~Ron Wiginton, of Elmhurst University
“Place-based arts and cultural practices, or creative placemaking, can help grow social cohesion to encourage community well-being. As we climb out of COVID-19 and focus on equitable recovery, this need is greater than ever.” ~Kresge Arts Endowment Chairman Ann Eiler
“Artists and creative practices can help us reckon with the past and pave the way to a more racially just and equitable recovery.” ~Regina Smith, managing director of Kresge’s Arts & Culture Program
