Our newest supporter, Jon Deaton, was so proud to join us he put our logo on his company's promotional flyer.
"[T]he consortium sets the high ethical standard for practitioners of Creative Placemaking to follow," Deaton wrote. "My [involvement with NCCP] creates trust immediately with our clients and communities. It also creates a fellowship which makes our team better, and more educated practitioners of the trade."
Deaton is owner and founder of 20/20 Extreme, a community consulting company that started in Paducah, KY, but now has clients in several states. He is a member of the Rotary International and Young Professionals, and it was his work with the Rotary's chapter in Paducah that inspired him to found a company that serves growing small communities. He has brought attention to the assets of Western Kentucky by initiating the West Kentucky Film Commission.
In addition to running a business, Deaton is also a student in the 2019 class of the Certificate in Creative Placemaking program, jointly presented by NCCP and the New Hampshire Institute of Art. It was his idea to put our logo on his company's flyer, and we were happy to oblige.
NCCP offers free webinars, low-cost workshops and regional summits in an effort to increase capacity in the field of creative placemaking. Consider helping us continue to offer free- and low-cost programing. For more information on our values-driven beliefs, please visit our website.
