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.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Ten Talented Local Leaders Win LISC Fellowship

They come from all corners of the country, and all share a deep commitment to helping their communities thrive. Meet the inaugural class of the Michael Rubinger Community Fellowship. Named after LISC’s longtime CEO, who retired last summer, the fellowship recognizes their accomplishments to date, and invests in their growth as leaders and in the future of community development. “They are the staying power of what we do,” Rubinger said.  “We owe it to our field to find new ways to build and nurture them.”

In Flint, an Avenue Leading to Safety

For decades, the residents of Flint, Michigan have endured high rates of crime alongside devastating unemployment, depopulation and blight—and recently, a severe water crisis on top of that. But the energy and commitment of neighbors, business people and key anchor institutions are transforming the historic University Avenue corridor. Crime there, in turn, has plummeted. A Department of Justice community safety grant, with training and technical assistance from LISC, has ramped up those efforts and is helping make the corridor a model of problem-solving, and optimism, for all of Flint.

A Hive of Small Business Activity in Boston

In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25), we're profiling emerging enterprises in the communities where we work that have benefited from LISC small business lending and support. In Boston, Northeastern University and LISC have launched the Impact Lending initiative to spur women- and minority-owned businesses and local economies that surround the university. Honeycomb Café, a bustling new locavore restaurant in South Boston’s Dorchester area, offers a picture of impact lending at its finest.
