In addition to speaking about cities and communities, Peter has been consulting with a wide range of civic organizations, from economic development groups to arts and cultural groups to young professional organizations on how to create more vibrant communities. This includes large scale projects such as the Creative Cities Summit to much smaller engagements such as the Armory Arts Village or the AMBIT project with Northern Ireland.
In support of his book, Peter has developed an interactive half day workshop for communities that allows them to develop their own approaches to becoming a more lovable community. The workshop is ideal for a group (from 10 to 100+ people) to explore what people connect with in their own community, how to improve and maximize that connection and lead more people towards being “in love” with their place.
The workshop maps key community assets including the “co-creators” that shape the city and develops strategies and tactics to engage these local development resources. An emphasis is placed on developing locally based solutions that do not require significant resources and can be quickly implemented.
