Burn In | Art Branding & Creative Placemaking

Burn In | Art Branding & Creative Placemaking

Calling on artists to enhance the presence, profile and performance of businesses is nothing new. Nor is promoting the arts as an economic as well as a cultural driver for communities.

According to a study by the National Endowment for the Arts and the US Conference of Mayors, the arts account for approximately one-fifth nowadays of all economic growth and activity.
But how can it actually work with measurable success for individual artists as well as for the greater community along with specific businesses?
Now for the first time you can learn directly from the people who have turned both art-branding and creative placemaking into an unquestionable success story in Europe, and who are visiting selected US cities this fall to share their insights, offer training and develop long-term strategic partnerships.

Taking a cue from Gustav Klimt and the Vienna Secession, which at the turn of the twentieth century transformed the capital of the Habsburg empire from an artistic backwater into the proving ground of modernism, Burn-In has a simple formula: art is what it’s ultimately all about – period!

In co-operation with the Global Art & Ideas Nexus (GAIN) ( through its Firewires initiative (, a consortium of universities and public arts advocates that grew out of the Impact Arts initiative in York, Pennsylvania, Burn-In will be conducting a series of so-called “Ignite” seminars for artists, community leaders, entrepreneurs, and business executives aimed at “changing the conversation” and offering more effective strategies for arts development in urban environments.
