Full Conference Schedule

Speakers include:  Keynote addresses from Sharon E. Sutton and Antionette Carroll, and talks by  Dan D’Oca (The Arsenal of Exclusion & Inclusion), April De Simone, Hip Hop Architecture, Bryan C Lee, and many many more!

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. This annual event brings together practitioners invested in community engaged design; architecture, design and planning firms, community members, faculty and students, nonprofit organizations, and local governments.
