To launch the Knight Creative Communities Initiative, an effort to inspire community engagement and major change using a unique approach that focuses on the technology, talent and tolerance of a place
The Knight Creative Communities Initiative will be a phased program with modules for leadership training, strategic benchmarking and research, and the potential to develop a codified "playbook" for use by Knight communities in their pursuit of community transformation. Richard Florida Creativity Group (RFCG) will present a series of Creative Community Leadership Seminars to train foundation staff and selected community leaders. The curriculum will be based on Florida's Three T (technology, talent and tolerance) theories of economic and community development.
