The Memphis Manifesto

We conceived, organized and co-hosted with Richard Florida the first meeting of the “creative class” to develop a call to action for cities of North America. Convening 125 specially-invited people from 48 cities in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, we led development in three days of 10 widely-quoted principles — known as the Memphis Manifesto — that should guide the policies and priorities of cities seeking to attract and retain creative workers.
