Founded in 1665, The City of Elizabeth has a rich and celebrated history. Home to nearly 125,000 people, Elizabeth is the fourth largest city in New Jersey with a diverse population representing 50 countries and 37 language groups. Over the past twenty-five years, there have occurred enormous  shifts in the business climate, industrial base, and population demographics. Creative Elizabeth’s Call to Collaboration will bring together the creative thinkers and thought-leaders in Elizabeth’s region—leaders in education, politics, industry, transportation, finance, and other fields who think beyond the daily challenges of their particular fields of interest and imagine Elizabeth’s new potential.


The First Presbyterian Church of Elizabeth (pictured here) will be hosting us in the newly renovated Snyder Academy of Elizabethtown building – a multi-use facility filled with natural light that houses smart classrooms with flexible configurations, a culinary school, office, meeting and performance spaces!
