Artscape's Culture-Led Regeneration Program is our improved organizational and leadership development workshop series focused on building the capacity of communities to use a multi-dimensional renewal or revitalization approach wherein art, culture and creativity play a leading role in community transformation.

Artscape brings together top practitioners from around the world for a comprehensive learning experience that demystifies the complexity of culture-led regeneration. Intensive workshops will connect participants with similar-minded practitioners, innovative leaders and catalytic projects that capitalize on the synergies between creative people, unique places and cross-sector collaboration.
