Here are some thoughts from last year’s attendees on the Leadership Summit
- “The Summit generated a lot of energy and consisted of big, thoughtful discussions
- It was great being with like-minded people from around the country and in a location which has experienced a lot of neglect but now is rising to the surface in a positive way
- Great networking and learning opportunity
- A bit different than the usual conference, with more time for discussion, networking and creative thought
- For people involved in the arts and community development, the program focused specifically on their needs
- Useful discussions and perspectives for those interested in the intersection of arts/culture and community development
- Great, current, relevant conversations.
- I told colleagues that the sessions were helpful to a broad range of professions.
- High quality and well thought out event; worth your while
- Small conference with good content and a great chance to network with colleagues on the East Coast.
- I told them that I found out about some interesting metrics for ‘gold’ for the arts
- I raved about it.
- It was really inspiring
- The sessions were inspiring and helped solidify some organizational ideas.
- I encouraged colleagues to attend… and would definitely do so again.
- That it’s very informative and educational, especially if they are new to or just beginning creative placemaking.”
