Thu, 10/27/2016 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Cambridge Historical Society presents a 3-part symposium about the past, present and future of affordable housing in Cambridge.

Conversation 2, 'What have been the successes & failures of affordable housing planning & activism?

Speakers:
Chris Arnold, Correspondent, National Public Radio, Moderator
Cheryl-Ann Pizza-Zeoli, Officer, Alliance of Cambridge Tenants
Gregory Russ, Executive Director, Cambridge Housing Authority
Jim Stockard, Retired Curator, Loeb Fellowship, Harvard Graduate School of Design

We will hear about what's been tried, where we have succeeded and failed. We'll ask what success looks like. The goal is to inspire dialogue with an emphasis on curiosity and question-asking. Participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences, questions and open-mindedness.

This 3-part symposium is supported by Mass Humanities, whose grants inspire considered thought, conversation, and action through the humanities. We’re happy to participate in their mission to improve civic life in Massachusetts. See more about what Mass Humanities does here: http://masshumanities.org/
