Now open: Intersections 2018 — call for session proposals

The National Complete Streets Coalition and Transportation for America’s Arts & Culture team are currently seeking session proposals for “Intersections: Creating Culturally Complete Streets,” the second national Complete Streets conference.

Take part in the movement on April 3-4, 2018 at the Nashville Music City Center for the premier convening of national leaders in Complete Streets and creative placemaking.

Building on the momentum from Street Lights, our first Complete Streets conference in November 2016, Intersections will take our implementation and equity work to the next level. How can arts and culture help us get there?
