Co-presented by South Arts, the National Consortium for Creative Placemaking (NCCP), and ArtPlace America, 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.
Plans for the next Southern Regional Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit are being revised to deliver great content while respecting everyone's health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dates, details, venue, and schedule information will be announced as soon as they become available.
Creative Placemaking initiatives span all different aspects of integrating the arts within a community. This conference is appropriate for—but not limited to—community planners, elected officials, policy makers, economic development departments, arts organizations, artists, and any other decision-makers in communities across the South.
South Arts believes in the power and strength of Creative Placemaking to serve as an agent of transformation and unity. We have collected the following resources to help inform Creative Placemaking practitioners around the region.
