Creative placemaking is a new way to make communities more livable, equitable and resilient through arts and culture. Hundreds of communities around the United States are pursuing creative placemaking; they are supported by more than a dozen foundations and federal and state government agencies. The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking is dedicated to building the capacity of artists, public officials, citizen activists, planners, researchers and everyone seeking to do high-quality creative placemaking. The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking is led by a national steering committee that includes leaders from a wide variety of organizations in the fields in arts, community and economic development. The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking is managed by a four-person team led by Leonardo Vazquez, a national award-winning urban planner and Instructor at Ohio State University. NCCP is based in Montclair, New Jersey.
