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?
