Before their Musikfest visit, council members attended workshops at Lafayette College organized by Gladstone “Fluney” Hutchinson, associate professor of economics and policy studies and founder of Lafayette’s Economic Empowerment and Global Learning Project (EEGLP), who is co-leading a multiyear collaborative co-learning effort aimed at bringing social and economic redress to West Baltimore communities.

This collaboration involves Lafayette faculty and students partnering with diversely experienced West Baltimore stakeholders in developing recommendations to transform communities into places of economic prosperity and community wealth and improve their well-being. Particular focus will be given to awakening West Baltimore latent assets, including cultural and creative ones, and the community’s deeper and more meaningful engagement with the value and wealth-building dimensions of entrepreneurial capitalism.
