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.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

The Affinity Dilemma

If the heart of our social problems is “like-mindedness,” the nature of associational affinity is one cause of the problem. Local examples/possibilities of “different mindedness” may be the way serious citizen dialogue can develop in relatively homogeneous places.

Forget Your Perfect Offering

Sage advice: Stop looking for concepts or tools that might be better than the ones you currently use. Your association with frailty, vulnerability and imperfection will serve you better anything or anyone that promises certainty.

Withering into the Truth

As a present to himself in anticipation of his seventy-eighth birthday, Parker reflects on six lessons he has learned so far in his time on earth. “If one or two of them turn out to be gifts for you,” he says, “my birthday will be even happier.”

Data Draws a Line from Housing Policy to Economic Progress

Does investment in affordable housing support social and economic gains? The data certainly indicates that it does, says Chris Walker, LISC’s director of research. As part of our occasional series on community development research, Walker takes a closer look at studies that analyze the impact of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit. It's a compelling body of evidence that not only reflects decades of development work but informs current efforts to spur economic opportunity for low-income people across the country.

Toledo LISC Leads the Charge to Curb Predatory Lending in Ohio

Payday loans, with interest rates as high as 700 percent, drive low-income people deeper and deeper into poverty and suck resources out of local communities. To crack down on the high concentration of predatory lenders in Toledo, LISC helped push through a city zoning change that puts limits on payday lenders. Now, the state of Ohio is weighing similar protective legislation, and LISC is supporting employer-based small dollar loans that help workers build positive credit histories without getting trapped in debt.

The Right Stuff: 20 Years of LISC in Duluth

An editorial in the Duluth News Tribune celebrates LISC’s history of investment and highlights CEO Maurice Jones’ vision for spreading growth and prosperity more broadly in Minnesota and all across the country. In fact, without LISC, say the paper’s editors, $300 million of economic activity, and countless jobs and projects, might never have been realized in Duluth.
