The first Southeastern Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit will be held March 15-16, 2018 in Chattanooga, Tennessee!

Beyond Big Cities: Creative Placemaking in Southern Small Towns and Rural Communities is presented by The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking in partnership with South Arts and ArtPlace America, and is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Arts and cultural leaders, public officials, community leaders, organizational decisionmakers and municipal and economic planners from the Southeast – and beyond – are encouraged to attend.
