A Market That Kindles Culture and Commerce

In St. Paul, MN, a summer celebration of arts and entrepreneurship, modeled on night markets in Asia, has galvanized commerce and culture along University Avenue. LISC's longtime partner, the Asian Economic Development Association, is leading the charge to revitalize the district, where Southeast Asian residents and businesspeople have incorporated a "a Minnesota twist."

How Arts and Culture Can Catalyze Rural Development

In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.

What a Farmers Market Can Do

In honor of National Farmers Market Week (August 6 to 12), we’re recognizing the extraordinary markets that LISC has helped launch, grow and support, and how much good they bring to their communities.
