Effective education and encouragement programs, including public involvement strategies, will also be discussed.
“I found Portland to be the perfect “living studio” and the partnership between IBPI, PSU and the City extremely well-managed. I am still in contact with several students from the workshop and trade professional information with them via e-mail quite regularly. These relationships have been beneficial for all.”
Shanta Frantz, City of Tacoma, and 2012 workshop participant
