Fostering a "Sense of Place" in Your Life, Your Community, and Beyond
Your feelings, experiences, and emotions, plus what you know about nature, culture, and history, create your "sense of place". When art is “place-based”, or seen through the lens of place, it enriches your life and your region. It helps people focus on what we love and our vision for the future. Erica Wheeler helps you explore some prompts and practices to profoundly link your life and your work to the power of place. This was one of the workshops at the fourth Creative Economy Summit which was held March 22 and 23, 2013, in Turners Falls.
