This is not your average conference, and the theme, Building Engaged Infrastructure,
isn’t just a concept—it’s a challenge, a call to action.
How do we, on a local and a national scale, create engaged infrastructure? What does that look like? What barriers do we foresee? What resources and support structures do we need?
The conference will consist of presentations, dialogues, workshops, and DeepThink Tanks, which the conference committee will arrange to create a narrative structure that moves attendees through theories and proposals and project examples interspersed with sessions to reflect, incorporate, and collaborate. From the pre-conference hikes and planned outings to the final, full-conference DeepThink Tank on Professionalization and Engaged Infrastructure, we will build relationships and forge networks of engagement and support.
