42nd Annual Association for Community Design Conference hosted by Delta Design Build

Community design work begins with an understanding of the power of people first. It is the web of relationships, history, narrative, mythology, and aspirations embodied in the people of a community that is the fabric of a place.  This conference will highlight these experts on place; the people who work, celebrate, struggle, organize, worship, and live in the neighborhoods we live, work, and play in. 


  • Equity: Systems of oppression and inequity disproportionately impact Communities of Color.  How can community design actively work to build power and offset barriers to make more just places?
  • Engagement: Young people and vulnerable communities are valuable assets not often included in community decisions. What are ways to include these groups in design and community activism?

  • Resilience: In the face of adversity, our neighborhoods continue to bounce back. How do cultural heritage and people, as well as environmental conditions, impact a place’s ability to persevere?

  • Innovation: The practice of community design continues to evolve on large and small scales. What are alternative approaches to our practice that catalyze change?
