I would like to invite you to the Community Built Association’s 2012 Conference: Community Building in the Urban Village. This conference seeks to expand and deepen the practice of community engagement through the lenses of art, play, nature and the built environment. The conference is intended for anyone who is interested in engaging their community in collaborative works, from experts in the field to those exploring this way of working.
