Atlanta, GA, March 5-8, 2024.

“The utilization of the arts to explore solutions-based, community building is at the core of creative placemaking,” said Jessyca Holland, Director of Organization and Community Initiatives for South Arts. “Creative Placemaking connects people to the built and natural environment. The outcomes may be economic or social. In 2024, we will explore creative placemaking through the lens of sustainability, or the intersections of People, Planet, and Prosperity.”


Since the first Summit in 2018, the Creative Placemaking Summit has grown to be a pivotal event for those in the field of creative placemaking, serving as the platform for industry leaders, innovators, experts and peer-to-peer opportunities to share knowledge, insights, and best practices. With a focus on innovation and collaboration, the Summit has continually evolved to address the ever-changing landscape of creative placemaking by fostering a community of professionals dedicated to advancing the industry and ensuring its sustainable growth.
