Join us for an engaging panel discussion focusing on community impact projects that advance social justice, equitable placemaking, and economic development. This dynamic seminar will explore the power of partnerships in creating transformative change within communities through three specific projects: a 35-acre neighborhood development, a state-of-the-art non-profit performing arts center, and a metaverse enabled BIPOC virtual museum. This distinguished panel comprises four BIPOC industry leaders: two brilliant architectural/urban designers, a hip-hop artist turned community entrepreneur, and a community impact focused real estate developer. They will share their insights, experiences, and best practices in leveraging diverse skills and resources for the benefit of communities through the presented projects. Guided by an expert community engagement consultant that has partnered with all four panelists on each project respectively, the panel will delve into the intricacies of collaboration, project design, and execution. By the end of this panel discussion, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and inspiration needed to foster meaningful partnerships and drive transformative change within their own communities. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to learn from experts who have successfully put their money where their mouths are, making a tangible impact on the communities they serve.
