Camden, the “City Invincible,” built its early reputation as port city, industrial and manufacturing hub, is currently home to major hospitals, higher education institutions and many attractions. Though Camden has been faced with economic challenges for many years, the spirit of its residents and champions from all walks of life has kept the City moving forward. A highly diverse city, Camden is poised to become a model 21st-Century city – one that embraces all of its residents, economic prosperity for all, and collaboration for the collective good. Many individuals and organizations have been working toward those goals for years, and recent national attention and investments are indications that Camden’s evolution is ripening.

This spring, the Creative Camden Call to Collaboration will take place: This two-day gathering is part of Creative New Jersey’s statewide series of community-based convenings, aimed at helping to fuel current efforts already in action and to foster creativity, innovation, and sustainability by facilitating cross-sector partnerships in commerce, education, philanthropy, government, and culture.

Stay tuned for more information on the Call to Collaboration, and if you want to get involved, please contact Kacy O’Brien at
