Conversation 3: How do we achieve the affordable city?

Thu, 11/17/2016 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Speakers:
Japonica Brown-Saracino, Associate Professor of Sociology, Boston University
Caroline Cheong, Assistant Professor of Public History, University of Central Floriday
Adam Tanaka, PhD Candidate, Harvard Graduate School of Design

In the third of three 'Housing for All' conversations, we will explore the future prospects for affordable housing in Cambridge, and the “we” in our 2016 theme, “Are We Home?” 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/
