The ACD Annual Conference is a multiple day gathering open to community design practitioners including, but not limited to: local governments, nonprofit organizations, architecture, design and planning firms, university faculty and students, community members, and those with a general interest in the practice of community-engaged design. This gathering is made up of a series of presentations, workshops, participatory and/or advocacy events, tours, and networking opportunities that seek to further the practice and awareness of community-engaged design by connecting one another through our work. The event showcases best practices of community design and planning, exposing attendees to unique perspectives of the host city.
In 2017 ACD will be celebrating our 40th Anniversary. We are looking for innovative proposals that help us honor our past, celebrate our present, and look forward to the next 40 years together as an Association FOR Community Design.
