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!

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s president, Chris Daggett recently wrote this about creative placemaking in the state:
Arts can bring a community many benefits, from fostering local pride to creating opportunities for recreation or even mitigating cultural or racial tensions.
But the arts can also serve as a powerful economic engine, bringing needed jobs and dollars into communities.
We agree, and we’re glad to support this important work in New Jersey!
