The Charm Bracelet Project

An upcoming talk prompts me to collect some information:

"Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is sponsoring The Charm Bracelet Project, an international ideas program that seeks to build upon the strength of Pittsburgh’s North Side amenities by improving connections among them, encouraging creative projects and enhancing family experiences."


This is the talk (material copied from the Children's Museum site):

The Art of City Making with Charles Landry
Thursday, April 19, at 6:00 pm

"Charles Landry is an international authority on the future of cities and the creative use of culture in urban revitalization. He has worked in over 30 countries, advising city and cultural leaders and multilateral institutions such as The World Bank. He has lectured widely in Europe, America and Australia and is founder and senior partner of Comedia, Britan's leading cultural planning consultancy.

Mr. Landry's lecture is part of the Charm Bracelet Project and is sponsored by the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, the Community Design Center and CEOs for Cities.

Funding provided in part by the Heinz Endowments."

I was out of town for the first lecture, but from what I have heard, it was amazing.
