Dr. Cara Courage is a collaborative placemaker, arts consultant, writer, researcher, curator and project manager, specialising in visual, live and social practice arts and the urban built environment.
She passionately believe in the arts in society, the citizen’s position as expert in their own place and their right to have their say in what it is like and how it is run; and in the power of creativity in all forms and by all people in the urban realm.
Cara’s book Arts in Place: the arts, the urban and social practice as part of the Routledge Research in Culture, Space and Identity Series, was published in February, and projects in development include: a placemaking textbook; The Future Library, a built environment public engagement arts project; and a modern architecture map of Brighton and Hove and its surrounds.
