The Creative Placemaking Minor (CRPM) is a collaboration between the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (MAPP) and the College of Arts and Humanities (ARHU). It is part of the University of Maryland Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice.
Students in this interdisciplinary minor learn how artists and designers can play a vital role in advancing public dialogue, exploring our shared humanity and addressing some of our major challenges, whether it be sparking conversations about racial injustice, inequitable development, climate change or celebrating the diverse communities and cultures around us. In the Creative Placemaking studios, students will engage in place-based projects in partnership with local creatives, culture bearers and knowledge keepers. This minor currently offers two tracks: one focusing on architecture and spatial practice and the other on the visual arts.
This 15-credit minor offers two concentrations, one focusing on architecture design and the other on the visual arts.
