More sessions and speakers announced for Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit

By Leonardo Vazquez, AICP/PP

Whether your interest is in physical development, the arts, public policy, or economic development, you can get a lot out of the 2016 Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit.

The program, March 18 in downtown Newark, NJ, offers a variety of workshops for many different interests. We have great speakers too, including Jamie Bennett, the Executive Director of ArtPlace America, one of the nation's largest funders of creative placemaking.  You'll also learn from experts from many different fields.  You would be joining key influencers from a variety of organizations, including the National Endowment for the Arts, Local Initiative Support Corporation, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, state arts organizations and more.

At the Summit you'll get plenty
of opportunities to share your thoughts. Our breakout sessions are training workshops, and we promise to go easy on the slide presentations.

At The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking -- which is producing the Leadership Summit -- we only make events that we would want to attend ourselves.

Here are some of the sessions and session leaders.  To learn more, visit the Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit.
