Join us at the New School for a community gathering, book-signing, reading, and general celebration on February 12, 2019, from 6-8pm. Free and open to the public.
In the 17th episode of the Holistic Housing Show, Charlie’s Angels are joined by Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani, author of the recently-released Contested City: Art and Public History as Mediation at New York’s Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA). Gabrielle shares how she and her students from the New School utilized art and dialogue to engage with residents, governments, nonprofits and other partners to re-envision NYC’s SPURA area after over 40 years of displacement, demolition and stagnation. Her book asks, how can we create a public planning ecosystem where people can disagree, with respect?
