Webinar: Our Town Community Indicators Study
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) will host a public webinar to describe the goals and research methods of the Our Town Community Indicators Study. This study leverages the NEA's involvement in Our Town projects to advance public understanding of how creative placemaking strategies can strengthen communities. The NEA's Office of Research & Analysis, which is directing the project, will report on the study's progress to date, and will solicit ideas about next steps. The webinar is thus an opportunity to make suggestions on how best to achieve the study's intended outcome -- a national indicators system that can become a valuable tool for defining, measuring, and conveying the dimensions of livability most relevant to creative placemaking.
Steven Shewfelt, deputy director of the Office of Research and Analysis and Jamie Bennet, NEA Chief of Staff/Director of Public Affairs, conducted a one-hour webinar on April 12, 2012 at 3:00 pm ET. Mr. Shefelt gave a 20-minute overview presentation presentation which was followed followed by a Q&A session.
