About the speaker
An Omaha native, Cydney Franklin has managed community and economic development programs for more than 8 years. She is currently the Senior Program Director at 75 North, an organization founded in 2011 with one purpose: to facilitate creating healthy, sustainable, mixed-income communities in the Highlander neighborhood.
“Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty and community deterioration by building thriving schools, recreational facilities, and other amenities to attract new public and private investment to the area.
The Highlander neighborhood was an easy choice as the first redevelopment project for 75N. Located approximately eight blocks north of former CHI Health Creighton Medical Center, it is well positioned for redevelopment for several reasons.
We believe that the Highlander neighborhood can, will – and must – flourish.”
Dedicated creatives and members of the Greater Omaha Chamber have partnered together to bring CreativeMornings to the Omaha community. We are committed to building a connected, supportive community where all are welcome to learn and be inspired!
The Art Center includes the three anchor Hot Shops, 50 art studios, four art galleries, and many exhibition spaces.
The studio spaces, which occupy the entire building, are available for artists of all disciplines. A place where artists can work and interact establishes an atmosphere for creative art discourse. This will not only be an energizing influence on development of art, it will ultimately create relationships with other artists fostering a sense of community.
