Creating the Inclusive City

  • National Public Housing Museum 625 N Kinsgbury Chicago, IL 60661 United States (map)

Public housing in the United States endeavored to help the least fortunate among us become part of broader American society. Politics of inclusiveness have been undermined by cultural, economic, and political shifts. The public sphere has suffered from a lack of investment in housing, green space, transportation options as well as in arts and culture. Join NPHM as we share some of the many ways Chicago's cultural and community leaders are confronting these sobering trends through concrete, inclusive action. Artists, policy makers, non profit leaders and everyday citizens will present on their projects and initiatives and share their ideas for making a great inclusive city.

Join NPHM in conversation with Miguel Aguilar (Washington Park Arts Incubator), Adrienne Brown (University of Chicago), Irina Zadov (Hull House and Chicago Home Theater Project), Sam Spitz and Teddy Williams (Groundswell Films) and Sandra Sosa (Chicago Area Project). It's an evening to share how these cultural and community leaders in Chicago are confronting sobering trends through concrete, inclusive action. Come and join in a discussion inspired by the panelists' projects and initiatives -- and share your ideas for making great and inclusive cities.
