The problems of gentrification can’t be solved just with affordable housing.  Even when people can afford to stay in their homes, the changes around them can make them feel like unwanted strangers in their own communities.  Placekeeping – a key part of the creative placemaker’s toolbox – can help.

You can learn a lot about placekeeping and connect with others who share your concerns at Shifting Tides, the 2019 Pacific regional Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit, June 20-22 in Los Angeles.    Although it covers the Pacific states of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, and American Samoa, everyone is welcome to participate.

Through workshops, panels and peer exchanges, you can explore placekeeping in indigenous lands; cultural asset mapping; collaborative asset mapping; fostering creative economies that honor rural areas.

Keeping Places is one of four ‘chapters’ of the Leadership Summit.  The others are:

  • Amplifying Voices – how creative placemaking can empower people to engage in building more equitable and inclusive communities
  • Weathering Storms – how creative placemaking can help develop more resilient communities
  • Supporting Movement – how creative placemaking can help address issues related to migration and immigration into communities

At a CPL Summit, you can connect with hundreds of civic and cultural leaders, grantmakers, elected and appointed officials, urban planners and designers, and artists and arts administrators.  More than 2000 people have engaged in CPL Summits since 2014, and more than 90% of participants surveyed said they enjoyed themselves, learned a great deal, or made good connections.   

All sessions will be submitted for AICP CM credits.  Planetizen readers can get a 20% discount on all tickets.  Use discount code: Planetizen20

CPLS Summit | Pacific is produced by ArtPlace America, the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation and The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking, with additional support from McClure Engineering and the Cultural Planning Group.

See you at the Summit!
