Submit a proposal to teach at the 2020 Northeast Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit
The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking (NCCP) seeks proposals to teach at the 2020 Northeast Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit in Philadelphia on March 26-27.
This event is for the Northeastern region of the country, from Maryland up through Maine.
Proposals will be scored by The Northeast Summit Working Group, leaders in the field who have volunteered to help curate a narrative experience for participants.
Proposals will be accepted until midnight EST on Dec. 4.
NCCP believes that participant-centered, hands-on sessions are critical to building the field.
