The Knowledge Exchange is designed for researchers, funders, policy makers and reflective practitioners in creative placemaking.

Informal but informative, the Knowledge Exchange will feature peer learning with topics chosen by the participants, along with quick and to-the-point presentations from creative placemakers.
Pecha Kucha, lightning talks, open space technology.  If you know these terms, you’ll understand what makes this convening different. If you don’t, join us and see for yourself.

The Knowledge Exchange is produced by The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking, Rutgers University School of Public Affairs and Administration, Rutgers University Arts, Culture and Media Department and The Ohio State University’s Certification in Creative Placemaking program.  It is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the Northern New Jersey Community Foundation.
