Useful and inspiring cases illustrate participatory placemaking practices and strategies These are stories of community members acting together to transform empty, contested, or unsafe spaces into functional, safe, convivial places. A diverse set of place makers, from activists to architects, moderators to planners, spanning four countries and ten US locales tell their stories in their own words. The complex and challenging cases range from building affordable housing to community building in the aftermath of racial violence. After grappling with issues like immigration, climate change, and coalition-building, place makers recount how they worked alongside once-suspicious community residents to enhance and enrich the places in which they live. You will learn how place makers build trust, diagnose local problems, convene stakeholders, and invent possible solutions based on the physical, spatial, and engineering possibilities at hand.

Popular music scholars have long been interested in the connection between place and music. This collection brings together a number of key scholars in order to introduce readers to concepts and theories used to explore the relationships between place and music. An interdisciplinary volume, drawing from sociology, geography, ethnomusicology, media, cultural, and communication studies, this book covers a wide-range of topics germane to the production and consumption of place in popular music. Through considerations of changes in technology and the mediascape that have shaped the experience of popular music (vinyl, iPods, social media), the role of social difference and how it shapes sociomusical encounters (queer spaces, gendered and racialised spaces), as well as the construction and representations of place (musical tourism, city branding, urban mythologies), this is an up-to-the-moment overview of central discussions about place and music. The contributors explore a range of contexts, moving from the studio to the stage, the city to the suburb, the bedroom to festival, from nightclub to museum, with each entry highlighting the diverse and complex ways in which music and place are mutually constitutive.
