Exploring what it means to be a Creative City has been a regular topic on Smart City. This week we’ll visit with Lynda Dorrington who is leading her own creative city movement in Perth, an isolated city on the west coast of Australia. Lynda is executive director of FORM, a craft organization serving Western Australia and the platform from which she has launched a much bigger creative capital initiative.
We’ll also talk to Dan Himmelberg, an architect turned workshop leader. His firm, Xpress Ideas, uses innovative methods to gather public opinion to create good design solutions, long range planning and programming. Dan’s base is Overland Park, Kansas.
