2. WHY THE PIE?
We believe there is enough pie to go around. Let’s cut a larger slice for residents, artists, creative entrepreneurs and diverse, local businesses.
3. CREATIVE PLACEMAKING
“In creative placemaking, partners from public, private, non-profit, and community sectors strategically shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, city, or region around arts and cultural activities. Creative placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, improves local business viability and public safety, and brings diverse people together to celebrate, inspire, and be inspired.”
— Ann Markusen and Anne Gadwa, Creative Placemaking, Executive Summary
But why here? Why now?
In recent years, the upper peninsula has seen incredible growth in both local businesses and creative energy. Against this backdrop Enough Pie identified a need to bring people together through creative placemaking initiatives, both large and small, to engage the community in a proactive manner and encourage open, inclusive dialogue.
