Join the 2018 AIANY Civic Leaders at the Center for Architecture as they showcase a spectrum of current civic engagement practices in New York City across multiple scales and platforms.
In September 2018, the Civic Leadership Program team created a survey which was sent to partners and principals at AIANY member firms. The survey focused on three major areas of inquiry—Civic Engagement, Equity, and Political Activism—and how New York-based firms support these activities within their architectural practices. Highlights of the survey’s findings will be shared at the event to provoke a discussion on these topics among invited guests and attendees. The full survey results will be published later this year.
Speakers will explore themes of equity, advocacy, civic engagement, and political activism within the structure of the 2018 AIANY Civic Engagement Survey. They will explore what these themes mean to them and to the public, and why they are of consequence for architects and designers.
Attendees will be exposed to a range of approaches for integrating civic impact into practice, and will compare experiences with survey data. Together they will develop an understanding of how to increase civic impact through practice. Guests will identify existing design-education based strategies that contribute to strengthening communities.

AIANY’s Civic Leadership Program was founded by the AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee with the mission to foster civic engagement and responsibility among emerging architectural professionals. Through mentorship and programming, the goal is to cultivate an enduring culture of advocacy with the intent of sowing lasting benefits for our profession, communities, and nation.
As a reminder, AIA National policy requires participants to attend the entire educational portion of an event to receive continuing education credits. We encourage all participants to arrive on time to comply with this policy.
