NPC17 Program: 2017 National Planning Conference
There are two types of activities at NPC17 and you sign up in different ways. Learn More
Ticketed Activities: Activities with a green "Ticket Required" button require a ticket which YOU MUST “purchase” to attend—even if it’s free. Purchase your ticket, add it to your cart, and continue through the purchasing process to confirm your space in that activity. Be sure to double check that you haven’t left something in your cart!
Non-Ticketed Activities: Activities with a Schedule or Schedule button are included in your registration fee and are first-come, first-seated. No spaces are reserved for these activities, so don’t be late. Adding these non-ticketed activities to My Schedule is for your reference only.
Explore creative placemaking from the community up, grounded in values fostering belonging, equity, racial justice, and inclusion. We will share local case studies from diverse urban and rural contexts, tools and resources, and creative participatory planning and community engagement practices.
In this 'doctor is in' type session, planners working in diverse communities can get advice from their peers. Topics available for discussion include affordable housing, arts and culture, economic development, gentrification, public health, public transportation and zoning.
