About the organizers: Creative City, “Creativity, Community, Renewability,” is a new consortium of creative individuals and organizations in all fields. We collaborate to match unique, creative ideas that build self-sustaining community with opportunities toward a unique, healthy and vibrant community. We seek to promote awareness of the integral nature of creative work, and as a force for problem solving and policy development, to strengthen and promote creative ways of being, to model a creative green economy and increase awareness of the role creativity plays in our everyday lives.
