I can link some studies later, but there is a good amount of literature pointing out how a strong arts scene strongly correlates with a vibrant creative class and innovation in the community. It is a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem (innovative business follow artists or artists establish themselves in communities with lots of entrepreneurs that appreciate their work?) but it is indeed intriguing. Same with strong gay communities, by the way. It is interesting.

Of course, you can always be accused of trying to justify being a hipster by saying it is good for the economy. But still, it is a debate that might be necessary to have in New Haven - specially because is one of the things that differentiates the city from Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury or (God forbid) the suburbs.

I actually did some writing about that not long ago; having a vibrant arts community in GNH Community is not a bad idea.

I was checking out a website about creating public spaces and thought it was very encouraging. I encourage those interested in the conversation about the creation of an Artisan Market in Fair Haven.

We are just getting things rolling so make your self at home. Start a discussion or share a project you are working on. I would like to find some stake holders who would like to imagine with me the creation of an Artisan Market in Fair Haven. Everyone is welcome so let us hear from you.

Latin American Youth Center: A Safe Path to Success

September 15 marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. To celebrate, we’re spotlighting the extraordinary staff and clients of the Latin American Youth Center, a longtime LISC partner in Washington, D.C. In its 50 years, LAYC has welcomed and served 27,000 youth, many of them recent immigrants, helping connect them to education, mentors, housing, work, mental health services and each other. This kind of work makes an enormous difference in young lives and in our communities, and we’re honored to be part of it: we’ve invested nearly $2 million in LAYC’s people and programs, including financing the purchase of the group’s home base in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.
