Asheville's urban design speaker series

 

CITIes determine their futures by the policies and practices they adopt

Asheville is a community on the rise. The design of our community impacts how we interact with the space around us and with each other, and influences how we live.

Join us for this free four-part speaker series featuring national experts on urban design, planning, placemaking, transportation and other community development topics to explore the role of thoughtful design in building livable communities. These deep-dive community conversations are dedicated to creating a better understanding of the role design plays in the growth of Asheville and its surrounding regions. The goal is to help create conversations by hosting professionals from outside the region, who will bring innovative ideas as well as examples of other community’s successes and failures.

The series is free and open to the public, thanks to our generous sponsors. Interested in sponsoring? Email us!
