There is a new and growing understanding about the importance of creativity in building vibrant and resilient communities. Creativity and imagination are at the center of conversations around economic growth, community transformation, and solving key problems that impact urban cities in the 21st century.
Big City Forum is a project designed to push forth a creative cities agenda and help foster conversation around sustainable creative communities on the ground. It seeks to link up the intersections, relationships, and shared interests between urban planning, economic development, education, architecture, art and design, cultural exchange, and community activism. Furthermore it hopes to help foster the idea of mapping creative spaces and places in which these conversations can take place.
