Twin Cities Collaboration Welcomes Charles Landry May 6-11
Global movement to rethink city planning, development and management comes to Twin Cities

April 27, 2012 - St. Paul, Minnesota ­- From May 6-11, the Twin Cities will welcome internationally renowned authority and one of the most influential names in city futures and urban revitalization, Charles Landry. Under the theme of Creating 21st Century Intercultural and Creative Cities, the weeklong residency will seek to understand how art, culture, creativity and diversity can accelerate both economic and social growth ­- critical elements in strengthening the Twin Cities as world-class region.

Charles Landry is prolific author, engaging speaker, and hands on consultant who has worked with cities across the globe providing expertise on building intercultural and creative capacities. Landry's "creative city" concept changed the way many urban planners view cities from a collection of infrastructure elements to a dynamic system made up as much by ideas and cultures as by roads and buildings. He's advised on topics such as green urbanism, using imagination and creativity for urban change, and tapping into ethnic and cultural diversity for economic development.

Together, five different Twin Cities organizations will host a series of public events and activities featuring Landry. Throughout the week, diverse people, organizations, and institutions will come together with Landry to visualize possibilities for developing creative destinations in the Twin Cities region. From improving economic outcomes for residents and businesses, to engaging diverse and underrepresented community members, to evaluating how physical assets along the new Central Corridor can be developed and preserved, the week will inspire collaboration among community members, organizational leaders, and public officials.

The public is invited to participate in the conversation by attending one of many events throughout the week. For a full schedule of events along with links to registration and additional resources, visit FundersCollaborative.org/Landry.
