1. Summary

Strong Towns is accepting proposals for the next Strong Towns on Tap to be held on April 9th starting at 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm at HUGE Theater in Uptown Minneapolis (Lyndale Ave & 31st).

The April “on Tap” will be a series of fast-paced, highly-visual presentations on the topics of land use, transportation, urban development, placemaking, urban design, municipal finance or any other Strong Towns-related topic. The event will be recorded, videotaped and produced; and each presenter will be given their materials to promote online. Think of it as a free TED-style video and podcast that you’ll be able to distribute.
