Urbanized Summit: Look/Move/Grow
Engage with urban leaders and change-makers in a half-day summit focused on the design of Indianapolis and issues around urbanism: transit, civility, diversity, redevelopment, livability, and resilience. The summit is segmented into three themes: LOOK, MOVE, and GROW. In the LOOK segment, hear from experts on big ideas foundational to the future of our city. In MOVE, tackle issues surrounding transit in Indianapolis. In GROW, participate in a sticky-note brainstorming session facilitated by Big Car and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful designed to translate urban design livability principles into actionable ideas. Also, at the Urbanized Bazaar, meet those leading the latest, greatest urban design initiatives that are shaping Indianapolis now and in the future.
At 5 pm, Gary Hustwit’s new film, Urbanized, will be screened in The Toby following the summit.
