More than 9 out of 10 Summit participants said they enjoyed their experience, gained useful knowledge or made valuable connections.

It’s a great place for educators and researchers in cultural planning and policy, arts administration, community and economic development, or urban planning and design, to learn about model practices.

As the owner of an independent bookstore that partners with lots of community organizations, I was intrigued by the chance to attend the Northeast Creative Placemaking Summit in 2022. My intuition was rewarded, as it was an incredibly rewarding and inspiring experience. Though we are a for-profit business, we find ourselves often creating and collaborating on many community projects and economic development initiatives. My colleague and I walked away from the Summit with a metaphorical suitcase of practical tips and ideas drawn from the many case studies and workshops. We also left buoyed by a sense that these ideas were achievable and that there is a community of like-minded individuals out there. We immediately got to work. My colleague started an arts & crafts workshop series and I initiated a public art project involving youth artists. Both projects have made space for artistic endeavors and have drawn attendees and visitors to our small, rural town. I’d urge those from the business world to attend and be inspired by this year’s Summit. You might be the idea generator, the people-connector, or the personnel or expertise resource your community needs. Our village in upstate New York is small and resources are limited and yet we are making powerful change happen! You can too for your community!
