The 2018 Urban Innovation Symposium, “Planning Through Friction: Finding Common Ground in Contested Spaces,” will respond to the current atmosphere of protest and political unrest. In this response, “innovation” requires justice and inclusion throughout every realm of planning. The symposium will present physical and conceptual spaces that evoke conflict, and engage with participants of varying viewpoints and backgrounds to find pathways to shared common ground. Prevailing perspectives are afforded equal footing to present, understand, and critique. Attendees will have an opportunity to explore perspectives different from their own and come away from the event with a renewed energy for conversation and collaboration.
Day session - 12pm at UIC Student Center East
Evening session - 5:30pm at National Museum of Mexican Art
