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.
Arts and culture are essential to healthy, connected, vibrant communities. Cultural plans create roadmaps to engage creative and cultural assets as partners in meeting various municipal goals. Discover how cultural plans become key components at city, neighborhood, and district-levels.
APA and Forecast Public Art are partnering to develop a public art and placemaking learning tool for planners serving small and mid-sized cities. Learn about what we are doing to serve communities seeking to improve the health of their cities via the inclusion of artists and art, and consider if you would like to serve as a national advisor on this project.
