Building Creative Communities_NYU

Instructor: Steven Pedigo, Director of the Initiative for Creativity and Innovation in Cities, School of Professional Studies—New York University

Cities are perhaps the greatest expression of human civilization. We come together in cities, to live and to work, to play and to create. The principles of economic development—technology, talent, tolerance, and territory assets—offer a strategy for building communities in the creative age. Cities of all sizes must create ecosystems that develop new ideas and that foster cultural, entrepreneurial, civic, scientific, and artistic creativity. This session will detail the principles of creative community building and offers practical examples and best practices for building more creative, inclusive communities.
