Architects are designing in the communities they live in around the world. Though they bring technical expertise to the work, they often lack community development skills that are important to effecting change on the ground. Now is the time to begin training architects to become community developers and leaders. At Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! we will share the tools and knowledge needed to bring architects to the decision-making table.

Be a catalyst for sustainable community development. Join us to share your knowledge and participate in a showcase of innovative design and one-on-one workshops.
