We are revving up for our annual ArtPlace Summit taking place in Phoenix, AZ! Because we value you and want to hear from you, the ArtPlace family and future supporters, leaders, advocates for creative placemaking, we’ve thought of a few ways we can incorporate your thoughts, questions, and pictures into our Summit!


Remember what I said about from the comfort of your own computer? Well this is it! Thanks to the fantastic people over at HowlRound we will once again stream our panels to those watching at home. You’ll be able to watch us via and click here to take a look at this year's exciting lineup.


Our Summit guide will be your #1 stop for all things ArtPlace Summit. You’ll be able to see our amazing roster of programming and speakers, and you’ll also be able to participate in live polling questions we’ll be referencing via our live stream. The app will also be a great place to see all aggregated social chatter around the #ArtPlaceSummit tag. How do you snag the guide? Simply download the Guidebook App via your phone and search for ArtPlace America!


This week and all through the Summit we will be calling on our ArtPlace Twitter family for questions, thoughts, and opinions they’d like answered during the Summit using the tag #ArtPlaceSummit. These can be general creative placemaking questions, or questions in regards to a particular panel and/or attendee. These questions will be peppered throughout the events and you’ll be able to view the answers via our livestream. In addition (yes, there is more), for those who will be joining our livestreams, you can ask questions via Twitter (using #ArtPlaceSummit) during the panels and we will be able to see those and flag them for our panelists!


You don’t have to be a professional photographer to have your pictures featured in our ArtPlace Summit! Just a hashtag (#ArtPlaceSummit again!) and a love for the arts and culture in your community. Leading up to Summit we will be asking all our social followers (twitter, Instagram, and facebook) to take pictures or videos of any forms of arts and culture in their community. As we get close to the summit we will be gathering these photos and showing them off throughout the events.

We hope you’ll join us virtually in a few or all of these events and we can’t wait to read your questions and see your photos!
