2014 Urban Studies Forum: Beyond Urban Branding

UW Tacoma Urban Studies Fifth Annual Forum “Beyond Urban Branding: The Promise. The Problem. The Potential.” will offer a chance for Tacoma and South Sound communities and beyond to hear about urban branding — what it is and what it is not. It will encourage participants to discuss and consider how a process to brand a city or region can be a unifying force for the entire community — encouraging the development of an authentic vision and the stories and narratives that make a place unique. The 2014 Forum will spark collective thinking about developing the next iteration of the region’s story as it relates to all stakeholders — residents and visitors, businesses and educators, students and faculty, government and nonprofits, young and old.

Unfortunately we are no longer taking registrations for this event.  You are welcome to join us on Thursday morning and we will let as many walk-ins in as we have space to accommodate.
