For the Love of Baltimore Workshop 

This Workshop is an invite-only workshop produced by Downtown Partnership and moderated by author Peter Kageyama. We need a group of creators to come together for the love of Baltimore (see what we did there?) to spur meaningful action and engagement in our City. 

Co-creators, as described by Kageyama, are entrepreneurs, activists, artists, performers, students, organizers and otherwise concerned citizens who create experiences that most of us consume. They are passionate, committed, inspirational and often connectors in the community. You have been identified as a co-creator, and we want to engage with you on our similar goal– making Baltimore a better, more interesting, more lovable city.

Most community workshops deal with technical or overtly political issues that many people feel unqualified to speak upon.  Because this event deals with the things that people love, hate, and engage with in their respective communities, the subject matter is not intimidating and promotes broader participation. Peter will moderate, we will all participate. And it's free.

Peter Kageyama's findings show a significant correlation between community attachment and economic growth, and this workshop should help us identify new approaches to help create transformational change.

Peter Kageyama is the author of For the Love of Cities: The Love Affair Between People and Their Places and the follow up, Love Where You Live: Creating Emotionally Engaging Places. He is the former President of Creative Tampa Bay, a grassroots community change organization and the co-founder of the Creative Cities Summit, an interdisciplinary conference that brings citizens and practitioners together around the big idea of 'the city.' Peter is a Senior Fellow with the Alliance for Innovation, a national network of city leaders that is dedicated to improving the practice of local government. He is an internationally sought-after community development consultant and grassroots engagement strategist who speaks all over the world about bottom-up community development and the amazing people who are making change happen.  To learn more about Peter’s work, visit http://fortheloveofcities.com.
