The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking

Thanks to our planning team from the region, we've crowdsourced the themes for our upcoming 2019 Pacific Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit. The event will be in Los Angeles on June 20-22 and will serve Alaska, American Samoa, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington. We asked more than a dozen volunteer creative placemakers for their ideas and suggestions, and here is what we've arrived at. Register at


Shifting Tides

The future of the Pacific region is currently being shaped by a booming economy, shifting demographics and climate change. How can creative placemaking play a role in shaping this future to ensure equitable, inclusive, sustainable communities while giving voice and ownership to the people who live there?

Keeping Places

Neighborhoods increasingly grapple with how much agency people have regarding change in their community. How can creative placemaking embrace the people and cultural assets already within a place while welcoming newcomers, and on the flip side, how could creative placemaking potentially contribute to displacement or cultural erasure?

Amplifying Voices

Communities here are home to people of all beliefs, ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds with extreme disparities in opportunity. How can creative placemaking amplify all voices by fostering equity, diversity, and inclusion?

Weathering Storms

Our climate is rapidly changing, generating more frequent and severe storms, droughts and fires. How can the Pacific region leverage creative placemaking to strengthen social bonds, making communities more resilient during times of crisis through creative approaches to disaster relief, sustainability, and regeneration?

Supporting Movement

Coastal regions are places of movement across international borders, across socioeconomic silos, and throughout the built environment. How can creative placemaking address issues related to immigration, class mobility, and public transit?
