BlackSpace works to nurture and support Black people in fields of influence that shape social and spatial environments. BlackSpace promotes and protects Black communities through collaborations that strengthen Black assets. The collective bridges gaps between policy, people, and place to realize equity and justice, moving away from perfunctory forms of engagement towards planning that recognizes, affirms, and amplifies Black agency.
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.
