This event was created and organized by Ink Landscape Architecture
After a year of global disruption, what are the challenges and opportunities for the field of Landscape Architecture as we move forward in 2021?
Are we building a bridge to the future?
It’s clear that there is no going back to how things were. Visions for the future — what’s possible and what needs to be done — have adjusted and are recalibrating. This is a platform for new and emerging voices and organizations to be heard. There is momentum, now how do we convert conversation into actionable change?
What are we going to do with this moment? This online conference will provide space to explore these questions and more.
You — the participants — get to propose the topics that will be discussed and to set the agenda for reform.
How it works
CUT|FILL is participatory and collaborative; it is an Open Space unConference and you are invited to speak and share, pose questions or ask for input. We will have a trained open space facilitator to make sure we are properly organized.
The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. Anyone who wants to host a session that day will announce the topic and choose a space and time. You choose which breakout session to attend.
You’ll have plenty of chances to exchange ideas and make new professional connections.

What we discuss and what we build will be up to us — each of us.
On July 29 and 30, let’s talk with each other, think with each other, and respectfully challenge each other’s ideas in order to build upon them.
The years ahead will not be the same as the years behind; let’s be intentional about how we want them to unfold.
This is a conference where we will make important steps towards crafting the path forward for our field.
*Ticket prices vary
*We expect 3 CEU’s to be available
