Established in 2015 by American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC), the IMPACT Summit will convene a community of leaders from the business, government, and nonprofit sectors to forge the innovative design solutions for North America’s most pressing cultural challenges.
SHARE YOUR VOICE AND MAKE AN IMPACT ON THE FUTURE OF MIGRATION, CULTURE AND DIVERSITY We are a melting pot of diverse cultures and demographics. As migratory patterns intensify due to economic, climactic, and current affairs, a demographic revolution is taking place. Through thought-provoking discussion we will seek innovative solutions to the challenges and opportunities presented by migration, culture, and diversity in the built environment.
How do we encourage resilient design in our cities and neighborhoods to support and serve migratory populations?
How do we create inclusive societies that instill a culture of belonging?
How do we celebrate the diversity that is rooted in our identity?
In light of the unique Canadian experience specifically in the Regent Park community of Toronto, the Impact Summit will convene a community of leaders from the business, government, academia, and non-profit sectors in Canada and the U.S. to forge innovative design solutions to North America’s most pressing challenges in the built environment. IDC and ASID seek to foster action through insightful and provocative programming designed to help members and participants connect, collaborate, and drive ideas to action.
