Art of City Building (AoCB) is a new conference designed to inspire conversations around people, design and placemaking. This is the first visioning event in a planned series of public conversations that will bring together local, national, and international thought leaders who will share their experiences, connect to Halifax, and aim to challenge thinking. Free event but registration is required.
“What is the Halifax we want to be”? This is a central question at a critical time in our city’s history. This is a time of dramatic change, new development, new investment, activity, and growth. This is happening alongside a fear of changing identity and the practical and significant challenges of a city under construction
The conference will explore our ability to achieve broad community development objectives around topics such as designing accessible, safe streets; promotion of art and culture; preserving history and driving innovation; creation of public spaces and bike lanes; the important role of real estate development, density and private investment in city building efforts, as well as the subtle details that touch the individual lives, health and happiness of our citizens.
By engaging diverse audiences in respectful, aspirational conversations, the conference will aim to expand the conversation and contribute to the development of a shared vision for Halifax that is inclusive, that honours the past while inspiring new ideas and embracing a future Halifax evolving.
