Challenging Sameness with Art & Culture – Podcast featuring Chris Frampton

As a longtime advocate of the arts, CEO of East West Partners Chris Frampton emphasizes the value that arts and cultural initiatives bring to the real estate development process – from promoting public investment to building both awareness and community around new projects.

Chris discussed art and culture as solution-oriented tools for “challenging sameness,” engaging locals, and creating meaningful, enduring places where people want to be. When asked to describe such places, Chris shared, “A terrific place is one that is active, that organically creates community among residents, that is beautiful, of incredibly high-quality, and is a place that people really care about for the long haul.” Listen to the episode to learn more about the placemaking efforts that lead to “terrific” destinations from coast to coast.
