Reverberations: Call for Proposals


In 2018, we’re honored to be hosting Reverberations — Roots and Relevance of Community Design, the Association for Community Design’s 2018 Conference, an annual event that brings together community members, faculty and students, architecture, design and planning firms, nonprofit organizations, and local governments invested in community-engaged design.

This year’s event will facilitate conversation about strategies to dismantle systemic conditions that give rise to inequality. Through critical analysis, reflection, and dialogue, we’ll deepen our understanding of and influence on the intersection of community design, racial equity, and environmental justice.

In addition to pushing forward the conversation on equitable community design, the ACD Conference continues NDC’s role as leaders in the work of making great and inclusive places.
