Thriving Together

2017 Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit


New Jersey Creative Placemaker Reception honoring Donna Drewes

May 5, 2017

New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, NJ


How do you make creative placemaking last beyond a few projects? How do you build high-performing partnerships? How can creative placemakers more effectively promote social equity?

Explore these and more in NCCP’s annual gathering that gets to the “how to’s” of creative placemaking. The Leadership Summit offers you interactive workshops and other opportunities to build your skills and knowledge – as well as professional connections.

Unlike other conferences with an overwhelming number of sessions and people, the Leadership Summit brings together a few hundred creative placemakers to focus on a few key themes. At this event, the themes are:  Sustaining creative placemaking for the long term, growing strong partnerships, and building social equity.

Are you new to creative placemaking? No worries: We always offer a ‘Creative Placemaking 101’ session.

Creative Placemaking Leadership Summits bring together people from the arts, public affairs, real estate, and philanthropy.  Whatever you do for a living, if you want to make communities better through arts and culture, you’re the right person to be at the Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit.

Thriving Together is sponsored by Northern New Jersey Community Foundation, American Planning Association - New Jersey, with additional support from Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
