Topics will include inclusivity, ecology, access, arts and culture, history, transportation, economic development, and connectivity, among others. These talks attract design professionals, government officials, and members of the general public to educate them on local design issues. The 2017 Lecture Series titled Bold Ideas for Dix Park and the City of Raleigh, will be jammed pack with lectures @noon and @night.

The Raleigh Urban Design Center (UDC) and the Dix Park Conservancy invites you to join us.

Inclusivity as a Core Value
How do cities create an inclusionary, participatory democracy to make a powerful contribution that enables citizens to be safe, healthy, unafraid, and prosperous? Mickey Fearn will discuss how other cities play a role in facilitating an inclusionary process and how the planning and development of Dix Park can be a test case for community inclusion.

Landscapes to Remember
The necessity for ruins and palimpsest in the United States enables a complex and diverse set of memories to emerge that are as heterogeneous rather than hegemonic. What memories do we choose to bring back? Who chooses them? Join Walter Hood to discuss these questions and more. Walter Hood is the creative director and founder of Hood Design Studio in Oakland, CA. He is also a professor at the University of California, Berkeley and lectures on professional and theoretical projects nationally and internationally.

All events are free and open to the public. Registrations not required and no reservations are needed. Attendees are welcome to bring lunch or dinner to the talks.
