New developments can radically alter not only the physical form of a place, but also who can, and will, live, shop, work and feel safe there. A single project can serve as an inflection point in a community, with the changes it brings echoing throughout the neighborhood. What can developers and municipalities do to implement culture- and artist-friendly policies in their projects to ensure more equitable cities? How can artists help define and advocate for these policies? Join us to learn about innovative urban and cultural experimentation occurring in both California and France, and the new projects that are shaping places for everyone to belong.
