CODAsummit: Experience

Placemaking Art + Economic Development

April 6 – 8, 2022

NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Creative Presentations

CODAworx has created a one-of-a-kind conference to focus on the social and economic impacts of great experiential placemaking. The key mission of CODAsummit: Experience is to energize a broader range of people and demonstrate to key decision-makers the value of this very special work.

And because experiential artwork is at the heart of what we do, this conference has a special feature: Creative Presentations. These are 15-minute presentations by creatives who work in augmented reality, video projections, digital mapping, data visualization, sound…all to help communities create experiences that make a difference. This veritable talent show runs the entire morning of April 8th, with opportunities to meet and network with the creatives.

If you need a dose of inspiration, along with the specifics of how to create experiential programs that bring positive social change and drive economic growth, don’t miss these creative presentations at CODAsummit: Experience.
