High Line Network, Webinar

Coast to Coast webinar: Equity and Public Space—what inequities does the current crisis amplify and how can we address them in the recovery?

Tuesday, May 12, 2020
1 – 2pm
Location
Virtual Zoom event

The High Line Network has partnered with the Knight Foundation and Reimagining the Civic Commons to address equity and public space in the second episode of Coast to Coast. Coast to Coast is a weekly conversation sponsored by the Knight Foundation which takes a deep dive into cities and explores ideas and insights on building engaged communities in a time of rapid change.

How do we take advantage of this moment in time to redefine the infrastructure of communities, and the role of quality and accessible public space? With extreme economic and operational challenges facing our cities, how can we ensure equity and inclusivity leads in recovery?

Featuring special guests Carol Coletta (President and CEO of the Memphis River Parks Partnership), Alexa Bush (Director of Urban Design for the City of Detroit) and Stephen Gray (Harvard Assistant Professor and Founder of Grayscale Collaborative)
