Join Scalehouse, BendFilm, and the Bend Livability Project for the highly acclaimed film, The Human Scale. How do the spaces that surround us enhance or disturb our interactions with others? How can we make our streets more accessible by foot or bike? Through his world acclaimed work, revolutionary Danish architect and urban planner Jan Gehl has been leading a revolution in urban planning that has been transforming cities worldwide.

Following the film, Bend 2030 Executive Director, Erin Foote Morgan, will facilitate a conversation with Bend Tech Ecosystem organizer Preston Callicott, Bend City Councilor Victor Chudowsky, Brooks Resources’ Romy Mortensen, and Scalehouse Executive Director René Mitchell, about how innovations in planning, housing, and transportation can transform Bend in the coming decade.
