Join AIANY’s Civic Leadership Program (CLP) at the Center for Architecture for the second of two public CLP events in 2019. An information session and happy hour will take place at 5pm preceding the talk, which will begin at 6pm.

Architects are continually seeking to define their role as stewards of civic engagement in their communities. In today’s practice, the role of the architect is expanding beyond the limits of a service-based industry towards a more thoughtful civic role. However, architects may lack the skills and training needed to advocate for civic and social issues outside their traditional responsibilities. Participants in the 2019 Civic Leadership Program will convene a group of experts with this valuable experience and provide an opportunity for architects of all levels to learn community-based engagement tools and strategies.

In this public event, we will question our current interaction and engagement with communities and learn how to develop our skills individually and collectively, beyond traditional roles towards those focused on fostering community participation and facilitating trust-building. This event will bring together a diverse range of professional voices to learn how they have developed their own tools for community engagement. This focus on tools aims to equip practicing architects to understand how they can engage in participatory community projects prior or parallel to a traditional design project.

About the Program
AIANY’s Civic Leadership Program was founded by the AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) 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.
