TRANSFORMING BOUNDARIES - Resilience|Expansion|Inclusion

A boundary can mean border or separation or it can imply the farthest limit - as in most advanced or newest activities in the area of knowledge or practice. So what are our limits? Where are our new frontiers? How can we be resilient in an environment of fast paced change? Could we re-define the urban and social boundaries of a place/city/region? Can we create places that affect change in our communities? Join us for exploration and dialogue on how traditional forms and methods of practice are expanding and evolving.

Join us - On Jackson in Downtown Phoenix - Friday, October 7, 2016 - for a full day of meaningful presentations and dialogue.
