In-Person Program

On November 19, join the BlackSpace Urbanist Collective for a fast-paced, hands-on and interactive design charette where participants reconceptualize the built environment using principles of inclusive and culturally affirming design​. Charette expands thinking about the possibilities for affirming Black cultural presence in design projects. This program will be followed by a reception at 5pm.

The BlackSpace Urbanist Collective is joining the National Building Museum for a series of three facilitated conversations exploring the importance of Black spaces and the power of design in creating and conserving these spaces for Black people. 

These workshops are thought and action sessions, providing participants with a chance for deeper discussion and collaboration, and are limited to 35 people each. No design experience needed!
