Dynamic sharing economy workers - where to find them?

I work in the public sector and love the idea of integrating into our service mix ideas about collaborative consumption, collaborative communities and the sharing economy. We're hiring and would love to target our ad as effectively as possible. Where can I go to make this opportunity known to folks with both a commitment to and talent for community building through dynamic, well-planned events and inspiring long-term projects?

I love sites like http://www.shareable.net
, and http://www.newdream.org/programs/collaborative-communities/
But none of them have a jobs board. Two queries posted via social media (Twitter and the Shareable FB page) were a bust.
The best site I've come across is Idealist.org
, which charges government agencies $80 for a 60 day ad.
Beyond this, I'm not even sure what kind of job title to use. Event Planner and Program Coordinator hardly do justice to the vision. Community Organizer is in the ballpark, but not exactly right as we'd like to build community in general through a wide variety of means, focused on a wide range of topics -- civic democracy, the arts, literature, science, education, community gardens, oral history projects, co-working spaces, media labs, etc. "Community Architect"?? "Placemaker-in-Chief"??
Grateful for any ideas from the great MeFite Hive Mind ...
