Grantmaking Strategies That Can Transform Cities Nationwide

Mar 7, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

What does it mean to truly rebuild a community? Disruptive consequences of gentrification often displace longstanding residents, but community-led initiatives and thoughtful partnerships have the power to drive sustainable growth without eroding the social and cultural fabric of a community. Learn how Atlanta’s leaders have rolled up their sleeves in partnership with existing organizations and taken a balanced approach that respects the community's needs while fostering sustainable, equitable growth for students
