In the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the Black Lives Matter Movement, social issues are exacerbated. Already engaged in the transformation of their cities, a group of artists, urban planners, entrepreneurs, elected officials and researchers embarked on a journey to examine the process of city-making in France and California. The Oakland/Saint-Denis project was born under a common conviction: our cities must be built collectively and with the arts and humanities at the center.
Join us as we learn from three US cities – Oakland, Chicago, Detroit – as they develop innovative models for city-building. (+ details of event/speakers)
