Urban Design Forum


The Nashville Urban Design Forum was founded in 1995, and meets monthly to discuss the role Design plays in the city and around the world.

Urban design forums promote cross-disciplinary understanding of urban design amongst urban professionals; raise awareness of the benefits of urban design; provide a forum for discussion of design-based approaches that are relevant to the development and management of Nashville's neighborhoods and the city as a whole. 

Free for Members, $10 for Non-Members

Design Your Neighborhood Student Showcase

As 22% of Nashville’s population is comprised of youths, they are an imperative voice in our city.

Throughout this school year, over 3,000 Middle School students in Metro Nashville Public Schools have been working on design and civic engagement projects through NCDC’s Design Your Neighborhood curriculum. They have envisioned the future of Nashville’s transportation and affordable housing and developed tools for advocacy. NCDC is hosting a showcase that will include a student work exhibit and fish bowl discussion to elevate the voice of young people.

You are invited to come and engage in this important conversation about Nashville’s future with our next generation.
