KEYNOTE SPEAKER
ANNE GADWA NICODEMUS – PRINCIPAL, METRIS ARTS CONSULTING
A choreographer/arts administrator turned urban planner, Anne Gadwa Nicodemus is a nationally recognized consultant and expert on Creative Place Making. As a researcher, writer, speaker, and advocate, Nicodemus defines the role of creative placemaking in anchoring arts districts, expanding arts access, and boosting safety, livability, tax rolls and property values. Nicodemus is a leading voice in the intersection of arts and community development. She co-authored Creative Placemaking, the report for the Mayors’ Institute of City Design (2010) that defined the field. Her insight focus on creative placemaking as cultural policy and its ethics and practical challenges.
Nicodemus gives frequent talks at universities and professional conferences nationwide, and as far-flung as Macau, the Czech Republic, and Ontario. She is consistently recognized as one of the nation’s 50 most influential people in the nonprofit arts (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015).
Nicodemus holds a Masters of Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs and a B.A. in dance and biology from Oberlin College.
Nicodemus is fascinated by all kinds of places—their form, their people, their change. She brings her experience and insight to Dallas as this community grapples with its own urban design challenges, and the role of the arts in creating a livable community.
