Power of Place


From San Antonio to Boston, Los Angeles to Cincinnati, and thousands of communities between, the power of place is about unearthing collective purpose and capital — and how the Aspen Institute helps build that capital. Hear from visionaries who zero in on historical traumas to rebuild trust and a sense of community, from an expert tapping new sources of capital to fuel entrepreneurs, and how community institutions transform in uncertain times to become trusted sources for information and civil discourse. Join Center for Community Resilience Director Wendy Ellis and Institute for Museum and Library Services Deputy Director Laura Huerta Migus for a discussion facilitated by Marjorie Sims, managing director of Ascend at the Aspen Institute.
