Creative Placemaking Leaders to Meet in Philadelphia on March 26-27

Gain inspiration when you connect with creative leaders from Maryland though Maine who put arts, culture, and social justice at the heart of equitable, vibrant communities in Philadelphia March 26-27.

Register to gather with change makers who want to share insights with you. They are doers from a variety of backgrounds — artists, urban planners, community developers, local lenders, philanthropists, and municipal leaders. Immerse yourself in two days of training, guided conversations, and field trips to brainstorm at the most exciting sites of creative placemaking in the city.

“We are inspired to be part of such a creative community! The summits have been forums to imagine what is possible when we collaborate,” said Alison Fast, a Peabody award-winning filmmaker with Blue Magnolia Films and repeat summit participant. “Creative placemaking is a movement that promises to put people first, heal and rebuild our sense of community at a critical time, and rethink spaces we hold in common.”

The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking (NCCP) will hold the summit at Drexel University with the support of ArtPlace America, and in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Arts Council, the City of Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Municipal League. NCCP inspires leaders to foster equitable and vibrant communities through arts and culture. You will join an impressive roster of summit content advisors:
