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.
