Art, Politics and Cities in Transition: Public Space and Creative Placemaking

When: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM SATURDAY, ARCHTOBER 22

Where: At The Center   

The Art, Politics and Cities in Transition: Public Space and Creative Placemaking symposium will explore the role of art and creative industries in urban regeneration, with international and local case studies that address questions of gentrification, securitization and real estate development.  This symposium builds on a dialogue begun in Cairo by CLUSTER through the Creative Cities: Reframing Downtown conference, held in association with the American University in Cairo in partnership with the Research Foundation of the State University of New York. The program at the Center for Architecture will report on earlier exchanges while opening new avenues of debate regarding the impact of art and creative industries on their surrounding neighborhoods and local communities, urgent challenges to public space in times of conflict, and the potential of creative place making.
