With rapid changes in cities across the world, citizens are demanding and expecting new ways of participation in their urban environments. This evening panel will bring together interdisciplinary perspectives from design, public policy, and the arts to explore theories and framing of citizen participation and new possibilities for engaging the urban populace. From topics of creative democracy to participatory planning in public housing and maker activities in public spaces, how might we build a stronger shared urban future in the Bay Area and one that is inclusive and just?
