First, we invite you to participate in the on-going dialog on the Design Ethos blog. This will help you learn about life along Waters Avenue. You will also learn about different class initiatives that are presently underway as a means of preparing everyone for the DO-ference.
Then, add your voice to the blog, even if that just means asking questions, or sharing links or ideas. Also, make sure to visit the Case Study section, which includes projects that have been done in the past either along the Waters corridor. Between the blog and the Case Studies, we figure anyone coming to the DO-ference can learn just about anything they want to know about Waters Avenue.
Please note that this is only the schedule for the DO-ference events. The rest of the full conference schedule, which includes keynotes, receptions and other events, can be found here.

Below you'll notice a graphic that explains the member breakdown of each DO-Ference Group. This particular set-up exists in order to optimize resources with each theme listed.
The DO-ference convenes six ‘teams’ that will creatively strategize ways to empower assets already existing along the Waters Avenue corridor. Each group will explore ways to amplify and accelerate efforts already underway, and align those efforts with six essential areas of focus.
Design Ethos thanks Rwade Campbell, Jill Graves, and Dustin Larimer, members of Volta Collaborative (link to: http://voltacollaborative.com), for their work in facilitating conversations between the Design Voices before and during DO-ference!
