USA book, conference and TEDx tour

I am currently in the US, travelling on a conference, research, book and talks tour. 

Starting in Boston, with a session at American Association of Geographers annual conference, and a session co-chaired with Dr Anita McKeown, Metrics of place: measuring and evaluating placemaking, we were honoured to be joined by Sunil Iyengar, National Endowment for the Arts, and Vinita Goyal. 

I then travelled to Charlottesville to workshop the draft of my creative placemaking metrics report to colleagues from Thriving Cities and University of Virginia and from the county creative and place sector. 

Now in Indianapolis, coming up is a talk on my research in Indianapolis with Big Car to the Strong Indianapolis cohort, part of the USA-wide Strong Towns group, and a TEDxIndianapolis talk on placemaking and its social role in healing divisions around place identity.
