Thriving Together, the next Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit, will focus on how creative placemaking can improve quality of life for disadvantaged people, successful partnerships, and maintaining and growing creative placemaking over the long term. The Leadership Summit focuses on the 'how to' of creative placemaking.

Sustainable Jersey will be facilitating a session on the suite of actions related to creative placemaking.  We invite you to bring your Creative Team and take part in the interactive Sustainable Jersey session which will help you plan your arts and creative culture initiatives. 

Creative Placemaking Leadership Summits bring together people from many different fields -- arts, public affairs, urban planning, real estate development and more -- to explore ways to make communities better through arts and culture.  The Summit offers 'how-to' information through workshops, presentations, and other formats.  There is also plenty of time to build your network of creative placemakers.
