CCP’s Suzanne Ishee was invited to contribute as a guest blogger for the National Association of Realtors.
Creative Placemaking? What in the world does that have to do with me? My field is real estate, not the arts and culture! But….on second thought, I’m hearing a lot of talk these days about how the arts are making downtowns more vibrant and attracting more businesses. And my clients do like to meet their friends in ‘happening’ places. I keep seeing this ‘Creative Placemaking’ term pop up and it seems to be equated with a lot of positive impact on local economies. And I know the big buzz word right now is ‘sustainability.’ Better quality of life throughout our neighborhoods? Happy business people? Smart growth? Wait, maybe there is more to this than I first thought.

Creative Placemaking is emerging as one of the most comprehensive and vital approaches to local development. In partnership with community stakeholders, artists and cultural workers collaborate on planning in order to create places of vibrancy. Creative places provide sustainable and improved quality of life for its businesses and residents.
The Center for Creative Placemaking at Bloomfield College is pleased to offer a professional training workshop designed for real estate professionals to help them become local leaders for Creative Placemaking Planning. Realtors are critical to local development efforts and have the ability to influence significant investment action in their communities. Real Estate Professionals and Property Managers are integral to municipalities’ creative placemaking planning and execution. This program is targeted to professionals who are interested in or are already peripherally engaged in creative placemaking work.
We hope you can make it!
