Join Together North Jersey for the first of a three-part series of workshops on Creative Placemaking as a tool to foster economic benefits in a community. This first session introduces the overarching placemaking process.
This workshop will show how placemaking can be used by communities to engage residents, businesses, visitors, government and other stakeholders to develop strategies for creating exciting vibrant places that promote local growth and prosperity. Hear from speakers who are experts in creative placemaking strategies, local community leaders who have implemented creative placemaking, and learn about strategies that will help you to implement “Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper Solutions” that don’t cost a lot of money and will assist you to begin to make small changes quickly.
