FIND YOUR PEOPLE

ACD connects passionate leaders to exchange ideas and grow the community design field

 

Semiannually since 1977, ACD has hosted a convening in partnership with a local institution, firm, or organization. The event typically occurs over 3-4 days, at locations across the country every year. The conference serves to share research, work, findings, build coalitions among practitioners, and facilitate exchange between national practitioners and local organizations. The gathering is made up of a series of presentations, workshops, participatory and/or advocacy events, tours, and networking opportunities that seek to further the practice and awareness of community design by connecting one another through our work. The event showcases best practices of community design and planning, exposing attendees to unique perspectives of the host city. 

 

ACD is currently seeking hosts for our 2022 convening. Please contact Shannon, sarms@communitydesign.org, to learn more.
