Thank you for those who attended Creating the Inclusive City.
The conversation was both dynamic and thought provoking and can assure all us that Chicago's cultural and community leaders are tackling the lack of investment in the public sphere. We came away with lots to consider and hope others did as well: the meaning of "Division," from the street in the city of Chicago to the implementation of divisions with populations escaping to the suburbs, to how we isolate youth from making art and being themselves. Ultimately, we were provoked to ask how to define public spaces more accessibly and equitably as places where all kinds of others might feel more "at home."
It was a great night and we look forward to hosting everyone again soon in our space!
