Charles Thomas now leads the Knight Foundation’s work in Charlotte, but he has been involved in creating a better Charlotte for quite a while. He has seen what it is like to try to work with little to no resources and what it is like when there are resources available. Further, he has been able to look at change from many different levels. He is very forthright about the personal growth he has experienced along the way. In the end, he has accumulated a great amount of wisdom about how we can intervene to create better places and what makes these interventions effective.
Welcome to the Big Ideas for Better Places podcast from Cityworks (X)po!
We believe strongly in the power of creating better places and more thriving communities. Every week, we bring you a conversation with someone who is engaged in important and innovative work in the world of placemaking and/or community development.
