Three timely themes over three days

Theme One–The Decade Cycle: 10 Years Back, 10 Years Forward

What have we learned from the last 10 years? And what do the next 10 look like? How do we continue to break down silos and institutionalize design?

Theme Two—Power Structures: Shifting How and By Whom Design Gets Done

How do civic designers navigate within their own organizations, communities, and field of practice to know when to employ the right methods? Where does design provide craft that is different from other types of expertise?

Theme Three—Physical Environments: Interactions Beyond Screens

We’ll examine the innovative strategies, tools, and technologies designers employ to pursue equitable, inclusive, and connected public spaces.
