Join the Association for Community Design in Philadelphia this October for our 2011 National Conference co-presented with the Association for Architectural Organizations (AAO) and the Architecture + Design Education Network (A+DEN). Design In Action 2011 will feature pre- and post-conference activities, opening reception and keynote events, more than twenty breakout sessions (with more still being added), a community design exhibition, plus extended workshops, including hands-on building opportunities as well as mobile tours of community projects throughout our host city.

Come together for a celebration of our most ingenious partnerships and emergent approaches in public engagement, youth education, and community design. Gain practical insights from your peers and together investigate some of our more informative failures and persistent challenges.
