Research Assistant:
Creative Districts Cooperative Research. 


CEDaR is investigating the value of creative districts for community development and economic development in the context of western small towns and cities, given the recent implementation of this strategy across Colorado. To understand the nature of creative districts, we will begin by examining the process, implementation, and outcomes of other such projects in various stages of development across the nation. This will help us to build a framework for evaluation specific to our regional context and provide feedback to local communities. The project is part of long term partnership between the Community Engagement Design and Research center (CEDaR), Colorado Creative Industries, the CU Boulder Office of Outreach and Engagement, and select Colorado communities. Paid. (No Current Openings) Contact: Jennifer Shelby.
