Public Convening on Ethical Redevelopment

This free public event was held on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, 2–5pm at the Logan Center for the Arts.

ARTS AND CULTURE BUILD CITIES, shape public policy, and transform communities.
The inaugural Public Convening on Ethical Redevelopment was an interactive, theatrical event that explored and showcased how residents, artists, entrepreneurs, developers, and civic leaders are joining forces to explore a more equitable approach to community transformation. Practitioners were introduced to the emerging 9 Principles of Ethical Redevelopment, highlighting contradictions and challenges of city-building, and questioning what development means. 

Read a personal reflection on the Public Convening in this guest blog entry by urban sustainability expert Naomi Davis.
