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. From Matawan to Manasquan, this Partnership includes government agencies, civic groups, artists, businesses, educational institutions, tourism and transportation organizations committed to building a more sustainable and resilient community through the creation of the MoCo Arts Corridor, and by leveraging the economic power the Arts create for the good of the entire community. MoCo is gaining traction and in March 2013, 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!
