Call for Proposals

2020 Quarterly Conversation Events

The Kansas City Chapter is seeking proposals for future locations for our Quarterly Conversation events. We’re looking for learning environments that challenge the status quo and demonstrate innovation in instruction and space. Facilities should be recently constructed and include opportunities for collaboration, hands on learning, community connections, etc. Any project from early childhood to higher education would be welcome, as we work to connect the opportunities from all learning levels.
