“How do you get paid to do community design?” It’s a frequently asked question and the answer is more complicated than “organizational budgets” and “funding models.” Join a conversation with Gilad Meron, an Association for Community Design Research Team Member, and experts in the field of community design as they discuss their work, organizational values, and strategies they employ to harness sustainable funding. We’ll reflect on a range of practice models, including those from large firms, nonprofit design centers, and mission-driven, for-profit firms.  Ample time will be left for discussion.
