The draft agenda for the 2019 Midwest Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit (Oct. 10-12 in Cincinnati) is up. It's going to be a great program.
You can learn more about how local arts can be engaged to improve health, promote community preservation, make more inclusive communities, or address climate change. Check out the sessions at https://www.cpcommunities.org/midwest
New to the world of creative placemaking? No problem. We offer CP Core Sessions to help you build critical competencies for this work.
Register soon, and be sure to book your hotel room if you're from out of town, as the city will be bustling with people attending Blink, a massive light and art festival that draws thousands to the city.
All learning sessions have been approved for certificate maintenance credits for AICP planners. Expert practitioners from around the Midwest (and the US) will be gathering to learn and share knowledge at sessions such as:
*How Creative Placemaking Made Government More Equitable
*Funding and Sustainability
*Communicating for Appreciation: The Role of Arts in Community Health
*Design Futures: Youth Engaged Community Design
*Building and Inspiring Community Resilience and Mindfulness
*Building Trust through Co-Creation
*Exploring and Leveraging Structures of Power in Creative Placemaking
*Game of Zones
*Fighting Cultural Gentrification with Preenactment Theater
*Peer Exchange on Arts and Health
