Building vibrant, resilient communities and sustainable creative economies demands active partnerships.

Leonardo Vazquez, Director of Creative Placemaking at NHIA and Executive Director of the National Consortium of Creative Placemaking, will speak to the need for creative placemaking, what it is and how it works. Various speakers will provide insight on creative placemaking and its importance to work being done by planning, community development and creative professionals in New Hampshire. Breakout sessions will be led by CDFA Fellows who have just completed NHIA’s Certificate in Creative Placemaking Program.
