Register Today! Webinar - How to Resist Cultural Displacement in Changing Communities
Monday, October 15, 2018
3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET / 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET
The nation's housing affordability crisis doesn't just displace residents, it also disrupts and prices out the businesses and services that contribute to the vibrancy and character of neighborhoods.
But there are organizations around the country working to not only ensure that residents are able to afford to stay in place, but that the artistic, cultural, and entrepreneurial expressions of vulnerable groups remain rooted in their communities.
In Pittsburgh, Kelly Strayhorn Theater is flexing its power as a community anchor -- providing a platform for artists and cultural production to imagine a new future for its historic multiethnic community. In San Francisco, the Mission Economic Development Agency and art gallery Galería de la Raza are forging a partnership to counter the investment and development pressures that threaten the historically Latinx cultural identity of the Mission District.
Join this webinar as leaders from these organizations discuss their arts, culture, and equitable development strategies in approaching real estate, community engagement, and public policy.
