Designing Boston: "Creative Community Engagement"

The cities of Boston and Cambridge are launching citywide planning processes this fall; for Boston, it’s the first in 50 years. Both promise creative “engagement,” but what does that mean? What should they consider? What are some of the most creative and unique ideas that involve citizens in planning their city?

Join a panel of national speakers from Boston to Denver to Dallas, as they share new approaches to community outreach and to inspire our cities to be equally creative.

Moderator
Michael Ross, attorney, Prince Lobel Tye

Panel
Katarzyna Balug, cofounder, Department of Play
Mariko Davidson, managing director, Emerson Engagement Lab
Lizzie MacWillie, senior public designer at buildingcommunityWORKSHOP
Ken Snyder, CEO, PlaceMatters
