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
