Co-presented by South Arts and Creative Placemaking Communities, the Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit is an annual gathering that explores how arts and cultural programming can be forces for connection and community resilience throughout the southeastern United States.
As our communities become more diverse, they may also become more divided. Creative placemaking provides ways to build bridges across these differences in hopes of more inclusive, connected, and resilient places. Join us as we explore how arts and cultural programming can bring people closer together.
The Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit connects, informs, inspires and empowers hundreds of artists, civic and cultural leaders, educators, public officials and more from around the South. Through the Summit participants can build new or better partnerships, projects, programs and policies. The Summit offers a wide range of experiences, including peer exchanges, research roundtables, training sessions, and more.
The Summit is more than a gathering. It’s a place for creative placemakers working, living, or just interested in the South to grow their strength and their community.
