      For those of you interested in the topic of arts & culture in planning,
      a leading authority on the topic is Charles Landry. He will be the
      keynote speaker at the Creativity Matters Conference being held at the
      Westin Santa Clara Hotel on October 6th & 7th. He will be speaking at
      9:00am on October 6th. I am including a link to the website and
      encourage you to attend. If you're really interested, I can look into a
      discount for students-LMK.

      I am also attaching a PDF which summarizes recommendations he provided
      for the city of Adelaide, Australia, as part of a Thinker in Residence
      Program he was invited to participate in. Very interesting.
