About this event

2017-2018 Next Generation of Parks Lecture Series
Presented by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation

In 2010, the Minneapolis Parks Foundation helped jumpstart a conversation about park design and city building with our first Next Generation of Parks Lecture Series, hosting landscape designers and park advocates whose work includes The High Line in New York and London's Green Grid. We have produced a lecture series nearly every year since, always with a goal of demystifying the impact of great design—inspiring thousands to be the champions for dynamic, vibrant public space in Minneapolis and throughout the region.

The 2017-2018 Next Generation of Parks Lecture Series kicks off with renowned urbanist and designer Gia Biagi. Barefoot Artists' Lily Yeh and Toronto's Sabina Ali continue the season in 2018.
