Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit

March 18, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm



About the Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit:

It’s informative and enjoyable.  You can learn a lot, and meet other people like you who want to engage the power of arts and culture to enhance communities.  You can also meet people from different fields or areas who can help inspire you and help you be more creative.  You can share what you’ve learned.

The Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit is one of the largest gatherings of people involved in the intersection of arts, culture, community improvement, and local economic development.  In 2014, it attracted more than 250 people.  They included public and elected officials, leaders of community based organizations, developers, urban planners, and leaders of cultural organizations and, of course, artists.

The 2014 Leadership Summit got rave reviews.  Everyone surveyed said they enjoyed the event.  Almost everyone said they learned a lot and got useful information.  We’re planning to make the 2016 program even better.

The  Summit is produced by The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking and a wide variety of partners.

About Creative Placemaking:

Creative placemaking is a new way to make communities more livable and prosperous. It’s more than doing events, creating arts districts or building cultural centers.  It builds connections among people, issues and the arts.  The arts offer powerful tools to enhance quality of life for individuals, communities and societies.  Creative placemaking helps practitioners hone their skills and engage the arts more effectively.  Learn more about creative placemaking
