Creative MoCo Call to Collaboration
March 19, 2013
Hosted by the Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ
Central Question for the Call to Collaboration: How do harness the MoCo Arts Corridor to build a more sustainable & resilient community?
Twelve highly-focused breakout sessions were held during Creative MoCo’s convening and topics included:
- Definition of the Corridor and mission statement
- Convenience transportation
- Venue and artist collaboration
- Funding and marketing MoCo successfully
- Best practices to get people into our corridor/region/town
A bit more about MoCo: Creative MoCo was convened to tackle urgent tourism needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and to help position The MoCo (Monmouth County) Arts Corridor Partnership as a driving force in sustaining Monmouth County’s tourism, arts, and local business industries. During this Call to Collaboration in March 2013, the vision, strategy, and leadership of The MoCo Arts Corridor Partnership was initiated. The MoCo Arts Corridor Partnership was cited as a case study in a presentation at the General Session of the United Nations by Bloomfield College’s Center for Creative Placemaking.
