Overview

From October 30th to November 7th, SFU Public Square will host its fourth annual Community Summit. This year, through a series of imaginative and interactive events, we will explore the theme of city-building. We will reflect on the important role of creativity, arts and culture in building and sustaining our cities and our neighbourhoods. By profiling the increasing pressure facing municipalities by surging urbanization and considering what attracts and holds people to our urban centres, we will remind residents of the power they hold to shape their city. Together, we will deliberate on possible futures where everyone can not only survive, but also thrive. We will invigorate the public conversation on how people can connect with their cities, find their voice, and enjoy increased participation in civic life.
