Urban renewal through the arts

As real estate prices and studio spaces become more expensive and harder to find in the city, artists may begin migrating out into the suburbs. This might pose as an opportunity to help boost the renewal of neighbourhoods as artists have had a history of being catalysts to the renewal of urban cores for many cities. There is evidence collected that urban renewal through the arts encourages cultural tourism and subsequent economic growth. Revitalization through the arts and culture has also been able to give new meaning to decaying and low-profit urban infrastructure.
